A great recipe that goes well with just about anything! We paired it with hamburger steaks for a simple yet hearty meal. When I made this the celery came out very crunchy and seemed unusual when paired with the soft custard-like bread; I suspect I may not have chopped it up enough. Next time I may also try to saute the celery and onion when I saute the mushrooms to see if that helps. Overall a very enjoyable recipe that fulfilled our need for mushrooms!
