Recipe by AmyLS
I lost my Grandma a year ago, and have been copying her recipes for my family (my cousin wanted all of grandma's recipes so this turned into a MAJOR project) and this has been one of my favorites growing up, and now that I have a copy of it I can make it.

If I had all the ingredients to follow the recipe I would have probably given it 5 stars. The adjustments that I made are as follows: -I only had smoked almonds, so I used half the mount not wanting the smoky flavor to over power. -I didn't have celery, so I used celery seed only. -I didn' have french fried onions, so I used onion salt and dried onions. -I added garlic salt. -I added milk. I baked it for 15 minutes, added the cheese and baked for another 15 min. It was very good. This would have been great with the french fried onions. We are it with triscuits and english muffins. I'm thinking it would be a great hot appetitizer to use in the up coming holidays. Thanks!
