Celery, hardly heard of as a baked dish, is surprisingly tasty in this side dish.

Since I was the first to try this recipes, I felt compelled to jot a few things down! I really dislike the taste of celery, but decided to try it, and it was suprisingly phenomenal for a celery recipe. However, I did substitute a couple things that really improved and masked the celery taste. I used shitake mushrooms instead of regular ones and added red peppers instead of green peppers. I also omitted the butter to make it lower in calories and fat! The flour, milk and cheese make this side dish creamy. And the thick bread cumb layer really adds something. Give it a whirl, you won't be disappointed!


Who would want to be caught dead making celery for dinner. What's for dinner? Celery casserole.....LOL! My family would run out the door. Well, but I have leftover celery all the time and never know what to do with it. I thought I'd try this recipe and found it to be really tasty. When my husband heard what it was made of it shocked him but he still thought it tastes great. Who would've thought....? I really have to say, I'll be making this again and again. What a pleasant surprise!


This was delicious. So easy. I tried it because I had a lot of celery on hand. Wasn't sure if I would really like it or not. But it's great! I used fresh mushrooms and sauteed all the veggies with the celery. I also cut the recipe in half since there were only two of us for dinner. Thank you for a recipe with a "real" sauce and not a sauce made from canned soup. Much better, fresher flavor. I think I might try using this recipe as a sauce for a green bean casserole.
