    ThatBobbieGirl's Note:

    This is a lost and found recipe. I originally found it in 1988, on the back of a package of smoked sausage. I made it quite often for my husband and me, with leftovers for the next days lunch. Then we moved, again, and the recipe got lost. I looked everywhere. I had tried to make it a few times, but couldn't remember everything that went in it, and it was wrong. Just wrong. In 1999, my husband's mother gave me a promotional copy of Quick Cooking magazine that she had received in the mail. I was so excited to find what appeared to be the exact recipe that I had lost, submitted by one of their contributors! After preparing it for my family, I knew I was right -- I had found our long-lost favorite! The original recipe merely specified cheddar cheese, but I find we like it better, and can use less, if I use extra sharp cheddar.

      NOTE: I've tried this with Cream of Mushroom soup and nobody liked it-- the Cream of Celery is essential to the flavor.

      We really liked this. I made a couple of adjustments. I sauted a chopped onion and the sausage in a large skillet and then added a few cloves of garlic. I then continued on a directed using chicken broth instead of water. I used cream of onion soup and we liked it. I served the cheese at the table so everyone would get some and to entice my little ones to eat it.

      I follow the original recipe, but I diced the sausage and browned in olive oil,(didnt use butter)with onions, garlic, salt and pepper. My family loved it

      I love this recipe. I am making it for my second time tonight. I use 98% fat free cream of celery, and I use turkey kielbasa. Because I cut those calories out, I cook the kielbasa in a little margarine (as another person suggested) for flavor, and it comes out delicious. Even my husband loves it!
