Green Bean and Celery Casserole

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Stella Mae

I've had this recipe since 1968, cut from the local newspaper, and served at a large backyard party. It's been a favorite dish for many occasions, good for a buffet at home or to take to a potluck. You can easily halve this recipe for a smaller group.

This was really good. I did have to cut down the amounts as my DH won't eat green beans (he ate some tainted home canned green beans when he was young). I will definitely be making this again.
