I don't feel comfortable serving this the traditional way using raw eggs, so I use cream cheese instead. This is a summer BBQ favorite! Cook time is actually refrigeration time.

I love this recipe. I added sliced strawberries (frozen) on top of the pineapple, and used chopped pecans instead of peanuts. It was a huge hit at my BBQ.
