I have made this several times and always receive lots of positive comments. I think the recipe has been around for a long time. It is something a little different. The water chestnuts give it a nice crunchy texture.
Celery casserole with toasted almonds and water chestnuts
4 cups sliced celery, (sliced 1-inch) 1 can cream of chicken soup 1/4 cup diced pimiento, drained 1/2 cup soft bread crumbs 1/4 cup slivered almonds, toasted* 2 tablespoons melted butter Cook celery in salted water until just tender but still a little crisp, about 8 minutes. Drain and combine in a bowl with water chestnuts, soup, and pimiento. Pour into a greased 1-quart casserole dish. Combine bread crumbs, almonds, and melted butter; sprinkle over the casserole. Bake at 350° for about 30 minutes, or until hot and bubbly. Serves 4 to 6.
*To toast nuts, spread out in a single layer on a baking sheet. Toast in a 350° oven, stirring occasionally, for 10 to 15 minutes. Or, toast in an ungreased skillet over medium heat, stirring, until golden brown and aromatic. I hope you try it and that you like it.
The Door Is Open. Come on in. I'm glad you stopped by and I hope you will enjoy your visit. I live in the historic town of Murphys, California which is in the Mother Lode Country were gold was discovered in the 1800's. The Murphy family "Struck It Rich" in 1848-1849. The lifestyle here is quiet and serene. A perfect place to enjoy nature, reading, being outdoors working in the garden, knitting, sewing, crocheting, cooking, baking, decorating, entertaining or whatever strikes your fancy!
IN MY GARDEN there is a large place for sentiment.
My garden of flowers is also my garden of thoughts and dreams.
The Thoughts grow as freely as the flowers and the dreams are as beautiful. - Abram Urban
In the garden I tend to drop my thoughts here and there. To the flowers I whisper the secrets I keep and the hopes I breathe. I know they are there to eavesdrop for the angels. ~Dodinsky
