My grandmother taught both me and my mom this appetizer recipes. We always serve at Christmas and Thanksgiving. The stuffing is so yummy that even if you don't normally care for the ingredients on their own, you'll love the end result.—Stacy Powell, Santa Fe, Texas

"I have prepared this twice in the last month. I love the combination of flavors and considered it a healthy snack. It may be a little messy to stuff celery."
