It takes a creative cook like Mom to find a way to make celery star in a satisfying side dish. She combines celery slices with a creamy sauce, cheddar cheese and crunchy almonds. It's deliciously different! -Judi Messina, Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

"Not good. Won't make it again."

"I thought this recipe sounded really interesting so I decided to give it a try. I halved the recipe and used about 2 cups of chopped celery. Instead of using soup, I made a homemade white sauce. I also left out the almonds. When halving the recipe, it only has to bake for 30-35 minutes. I have never really heard of a celery side dish before, this one really surprised me by being really good! The cheese and bread crumbs really entice people to try it. Really good dish, will try again!"
