Pinterest

Inevitably, on Thanksgiving Day, your dinner guests will arrive early, and probably hungry.  Make this adorable Turkey Cheese Ball appetizer to help keep hands off the real deal until you’re ready to serve.

13 Days of Turkey: Day 11, The Turkey Cheese Ball Appetizer

What you’ll need:
  • 2 8oz pkgs of cream cheese, softened
  • 2 Tablespoons minced onion
  • 1/2 tablespoon minced green bell pepper
  • 1 8oz can crushed pineapple well drained
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • decorations:
  • pretzel sticks
  • whopper candy
  • beef jerkey stick
  • candy eyes
  • candy corn
  • fruit roll up
  • chocolate icing or melted chocolate
Instructions:
Mix all ingredients other than the pecans together until well combined, a mixer works best. With damp hands roll the mixture into a ball and then roll in chopped pecans.  Wrap it in wax paper and put it in the fridge to chill and firm up a bit.
Decorating: 
To make the turkey “feathers” stick your pretzel sticks into the back 1/2 of the cheese ball. To create the head take a stick of beef jerkey and “glue” a whopper candy on top with icing. Then attach the nose and eyes also with icing.  The gobbler is made by cutting a little strip of fruit roll up and then laying it over the candy corn.
