My husband loved this! I did use whole wheat bread since that's what i have & celery seed since I don't have celery salt, but it really came out great! I also added some garlic powder to the sauce since we're garlic fanatics. Thank you for the recipe!

This was absolutely delicious. I had no celery salt so I just sprinkled a few celery seeds in. I used high fiber bread to up the nutrition. I left out the veggies and served them on the side. I will be making this frequently. Thank you, Livie.
