My grandma Lorraine Stromgren would listen to WCCO Radio's Joyce Lamont as she broadcasted a daily recipe. My grandma would sit by the radio with pencil in hand to write down those recipe favorites! A cookbook was published in 1979 after 10 years of recipes being broadcasted. Of over 2,000 recipes that had been broadcasted, the cookbook has the recipes that were the listeners' favorites. This recipes is "rich and crunchy!"

I made this dish one night for dinner to use up some extra celery I had in the refrigerator. I generally do not like the taste of celery but this was wonderful! My boyfriend and I enjoyed it and I will be making it again, but I will be halving the recipe next time it was a bit much for two people. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe!

I needed to review this as I've shared this with several people now. I love this casserole - and when I make it everybody always asks for the recipe. The only thing different I do (personal taste) is add 1 roll of crushed Ritz crackers - 1/2 in the recipe and top the the balance. YUMMMM... Thanks for sharing.
