Pineapple Cheddar Spread



My family has been going to Emerald Isle, NC since I was a toddler. When everyone can make it, there are 18 of us. My siblings, parents, cousins, aunts, uncles and grandparents always look forward to the beach and our time together. It's tough to find restaurants that will accommodate large parties, so ever since I can remember, we have taken turns cooking dinner.

One of our favorite dinners is "finger foods / appetizer night." We all chipped in and made an appetizer. I created this spread using some of my favorite ingredients, which was a perfect blend for the beach.

INGREDIENTS
  • 8 oz. cream cheese
  • ½ c. mayonnaise
  • 2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 small can crushed pineapple, drained
  • Green onions, chopped, to taste
  • Bacon bits, to taste
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
DIRECTIONS
  1. With an electric mixer, whip cream cheese, mayonnaise, cheddar cheese, salt and pepper and cayenne.
  2. Gently fold in pineapple, green onions, and bacon bits. Serve with crackers and enjoy!

I love that view.
