Celery stuffed with a mixture of cream cheese, blue cheese, and herbs.

Ingredients:

  • 2 bunches celery
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 3 ounces blue cheese, crumbled (about 3/4 cup)
  • heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried dillweed or 2 tablespoons fresh chopped dill
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh or frozen chives
  • 1 teaspoon caraway seeds
  • salt and paprika

Preparation:

Trim celery and cut ribs into 3-inch pieces; wash and dry with paper towels. Beat together cream cheese, blue cheese, and just enough cream to make the mixture the consistency of very stiff whipped cream. Fold in dillweed, chives, and caraway seeds; add salt to taste. Spoon into celery cavities; sprinkle with paprika. Chill thoroughly. If desired, use a fancy pastry tip and press mixture onto celery with pastry bag.

So Easy!!!, Member rawksteadybetty

Made this ahead of time for Superbowl tomorrow as an appetizer and as a side to the spicy chili I'm serving. It tastes great and is super easy to make. I am not a fan of caraway seeds so I omitted. Definitely use fresh dill. Also I replaced the cream with skim milk to cut down the fat/calories, which I do not feel takes away from the overall taste at all. I also think this would be great as a dip with crudites. Just add more milk to thin down the consistency! Will definitely be making this again.
