Jump to recipe

With the holiday season approaching quickly, this delicious and festive Apple Maple Pecan Cheeseball packed with the flavour and texture will feed a crowd.

Hello, everyone. Well, believe it or not, we’re celebrating (Canadian) Thanksgiving in a couple of days. What? WOW. Do you know what does this mean? As I said, the holiday season is approaching us, and you can not help it but accept this fact. Halloween, American Thanksgiving, Christmas. It is happening, folks. So, grab a seat, relax, and enjoy this luscious Apple Maple Pecan Cheeseball.

The good thing about being a food blogger living in Canada is that you can celebrate Thanksgiving twice. It doesn’t mean you need to celebrate American Thanksgiving with a festive meal, but I have some extra time to develop and share with you some holiday ideas. Don’t thank me for this; I am being generous.

This Apple Maple Pecan Cheeseball is a delicious appetizer all year round, and it’s also an awesome choice for any celebration. Packed with apples sautéed in butter and maple syrup, herbs, smoked cheddar, and roasted pecans, this cheese ball screams “Thanksgiving”, in my humble opinion.

It is perfect for a crowd or just for a small family. But I need to alarm you that this bad guy is extremely addictive. Andrey and I finished it together…less than in 3 days! We had it for breakfast (It’s perfect with a cup of coffee), snacks, and probably instead of dessert too :)

Please be aware that because of apples and some juices, this cheese ball will require more time to firm up, up to four hours, so plan this recipe accordingly.

And trust me: your family and friends will appreciate this stunning and delicious Apple Maple Pecan Cheeseball.

    Wow Ben, I’m used to a Thanksgiving cheeseball thanks to my mom. It never looks like this though. Maple, Apple and smoked cheddar! This is the type of cheeseball I could see being devoured quickly in our household!

    WOW Ben you laid it all out there. Thanksgiving (this weekend – wow), Halloween, the “other” Thanksgiving and Christmas. It is HAPPENING. So soon!!! I am just getting over my denial that summer is over ;) Sign me up for some of this cheeseball though! One of my favourite appetizers. I’m the one standing in the corner eating it all! Yum! Happy Thanksgiving to you my friend!

    You crack me up, Ben! You are strict about not letting apples appear in your recipes too early, and then you go and make this amazing looking cheeseball that would be perfect for…Christmas. Ok, I admit that it would be perfect for Canadian Thanksgiving, too. I hope you’re making another one of these on Monday! I love a good cheeseball, and I’m intrigued by the apples and maple syrup in here. It sounds quite festive…and quite delicious, too!
