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

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch celery, sliced (about 6 cups)
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of celery soup, undiluted
  • 1 cup soft bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds

Directions

  1. Place the celery in a greased 2-qt. baking dish. Sprinkle with cheese, paprika and pepper. Top with the soup. Sprinkle with bread crumbs.
  2. Cover and bake at 375° for 45 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle with the almonds. Bake 10-15 minutes longer or until golden brown.
