  1. Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.
  2. Split French bread lengthwise and tear out the soft bread from interior of loaf to hollow out; reserve bread pieces for another use.
  3. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef and celery in the hot skillet until beef is browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease.

  5. Broil until cheese is melted and bubbly, about 3 minutes.
