  • What's good to stuff celery with?

    Looking for some not too fattening ideas that would be good to stuff celery with besides peanut butter or pimento cheese!

    Thanks

    Cream cheese. You can mix all sorts of good things in with the cream cheese too.

    My mom and I are the only people who like this, but here goes:  Cottage cheese sprinkled with paprika and chives.

    If you have Laughing Cow brand products in your area, try the light wedges in garlic & herb flavor.  The wedges are 35 calories each, I'd guess them to be 1 1/2-2tbsp size.  They remind me of cream cheese for consistancy.  Spreads very easily and don't taste low-cal at all.  I don't like celery but could probably eat quite a few stalks if this was in the channel.

    How about a little chicken, crab or ham salad made with low-fat mayo.

     

    I love peanut butter and celery.

    zippo--there's a french onion flavor too, but I'm pretty content with garlic & herb.

     I have garlic and herb in the refrigerator. I love it, but I never even thought about putting it celery. Thank you for the idea!

    It's not how you start, it's how you end....so end strong!!

    Cream cheese and pineapple sounds so good!  Years ago they used to sell little jelly glasses of this.  I think it was made by kraft.  There was also an olive spread and I liked that too!

    I typed "stuffed celery appetizer" (without the quotes) into the search box at the top of this page. Got 21 recipes--the first three look really good, especially the Crab-Stuffed Celery!

    Soften a block of cream cheese, add 2 tsp finely minced onion, 1 tbsp finely chopped black olives, 1 tbsp of finely chopped green olives, 1/2 tsp of season salt and 1/2 tsp of black pepper, a couple dashes of hot sauce, and if the mixture is still to stiff add about 1 tsp of mayo or salad dressing, mix well and stuff your celery, this is really a good mixture.

    This is great but I use frozen salad shrimp or chopped fresh shrimp, (canned shrimp are nasty) and I leave out the green pepper and green olives since dh doesn't like either of them.

    I am loving all of these great ideas!  The shrimp one looks really intriguing!

    Molly you can also use a can of crabmeat instead of the shrimp.
