Description

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!

Ingredients
  • 1 bunch celery - large stalks washed, trimmed, and cut into 3 sections
  • 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese at room temperature
  • ¾ cup chopped pimento-stuffed green olives
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1 pinch salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste
Directions
  1. 1. Thoroughly dry each piece of celery with paper towels. Mix the cream cheese, olives, garlic, salt, and black pepper in a bowl. Using a knife, spread a generous amount of cream cheese filling down the center indentation of each celery piece. Serve immediately or refrigerate.
