Cheese pineapple sandwich spread delivers the tropical flavors you love in 10 minutes and with four simple ingredients! Creamy with the perfect medley of sweet and savory flavors, it’s delicious as a snack or appetizer.
Since it’s back to school here in California, I thought I’d update the two special sandwich spread recipes on the blog with new photos and cooking tips for parents out there looking for lunch bag ideas.
Cheese pineapple sandwich spread is one of my favorite sandwich fillings, and along with chicken salad, I always make a batch of it on the weekends to enjoy throughout the week. I can’t get enough of its creamy, sweet and tangy taste!
This cheese pineapple spread is sure to be a hit with kids and adults alike. It makes a delicious sandwich filling as well as a tasty appetizer on buttery Ritz crackers.
Any way you serve it, it’s sure to be a crowd-pleaser!
Other than being super creamy and tasty, it’s also quick and easy to put together. You get the all tropical flavors you love in 10 minutes of prep time and just four simple ingredients!
- Crushed pineapple– use canned and make sure to drain well
- Shredded cheese– I like to use American processed cheese as it has a creamy and mellow taste that goes well with the sweet pineapples. If you prefer a sharper flavor, substitute cheddar.
- Mayonnaise– replace with sour cream or Greek yogurt if you want a low fat option
- Salt– season to taste
- The mixture will be a little loose at first; give it a few minutes to chill and firm up in the refrigerator.
- Want to make it smoky and meaty? Stir in some chopped ham!
How to store
Transfer to an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 3 days. Due to the nature of the ingredients, this spread does not freeze well.
