Ingredients

  • 10 oz Cream cheese
  • ¼ cup Cheddar Cheese
  • 2 tbsp. Fresh herbs like chives or parsley
  • ¼ cup crispy cooked bacon bits (about 4 slices)
  • ½ tsp. Salt
  • ½ tsp. Pepper
  • 3 Celery stalks cut into 3rds

Instructions

  • Fry the bacon on a very hot pan until it’s crispy. Set aside on pieces of paper towel to drain and cool.
  • Clean the celery stalks, cut them in thirds, and set aside. Clean the fresh herbs and chop them into smaller pieces.
  • Add the cream cheese to a food processor and process until whipped and creamy. Stop to scrape down the sides if necessary. 
  • Add in the cheddar cheese, fresh herbs, salt, pepper, and bacon bits and pulse until combined. Scrape down the sides as necessary.
  • Spoon the filling into the middle of the celery sticks, leaving an inch on the bottom free of filling and sprinkle with bacon pieces.

Notes

This recipe makes 9 servings. Each serving is 1/3 stuffed celery stalk
You can use fresh or dry herbs in this recipe. You can replace a tablespoon of fresh herbs with one teaspoon of dry herbs. 
You can control the texture of the filling by blending it more or less. I prefer to have the mixture more on the chunky side so I only give it a few pulses.
