I was going through my fridge late night looking for a little snack, but wanted to try to eat something that wasn't super bad for me. Well, I came up with this little gem that was super easy and delicious. My original recipe used only 2OZ of Neufchatel cheese, so I adjusted the amounts to use a full block of cheese. Neufchatel cheese is like cream cheese, but 1/3 less fat.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 ounces neufchatel cheese, softened
  • 8 slices turkey bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, minced
  • 2 scallions, minced
  • 8 stalks celery, halved

Directions

  1. Set cheese out on the counter in your medium mixing bowl, preheat medium skillet over high medium heat.
  2. Cook bacon 3-4 minutes, then flip and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes.
  3. While bacon is cooking, mince green onions and parsley, throw in the bowl with the cheese.
  4. When bacon is done, drain for a moment on paper towels.
  5. Stack bacon and dice, add to the bowl with the cheese and herbs.
  6. With a rubber spatula, press, scrape and mix the cheese, herbs and bacon thoroughly.
  7. Wipe celery stalks of dirt with a wet cloth, and trim each end.
  8. Fill stalks with cheese mixture and cut each stalk in half.
  9. Enjoy!
