This is the most unique use of celery I've ever seen. My grandfather really liked this recipe and requested it for all the holidays. Amy told me I should post this recipe. :-) 4 cups celery, thinly sliced 6 Tbsp butter, divided 3 Tbsp flour 1/2 tsp salt 1 Cup milk 1 can mushrooms 2 Tbsp green peppers, finely chopped 2 Tbsp pimientos 1 cup sharp cheddar, grated 1 cup soft bread crumbs Saute celery in 4 Tbsp butter until tender. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside. Stir flour and salt in skillet. Add milk and bring to a boil. Cook 2 minutes. Add remaining ingredients except reserved butter and bread crumbs. Stir until cheese melts. Add celery. Pour into 1 quart casserole. Toss bread crumbs with remaining butter. Sprinkle over casserole. Bake 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees.
