Grandma's Stuffed Celery

Rated as 4.46 out of 5 Stars

"My grandma always made stuffed celery at Thanksgiving and Christmas. As kids, we were always so hungry before the holiday meal we would sneak and get a piece of celery to curb our appetite. It was nearly all gone by meal time and we always got fussed at with hint of a grin from Grandma. Now I never have holiday meals without it!"

FANTASTIC! This not only was tasty, it was easy to do, very colorful, and enjoyed by all. I followed the recipe exactly and used a #32 tip to fill. Thank you Sherilyn for sharing!

My family and I have been making this wonderful, easy appetizer for many years now, sans the garlic, but will try with it next time. What's great is most of us always have these ingredients on ...
