2 cups celery stalks, cut crosswise in 1-inch lengths
2 1/2 cups white sauce, as described in the oyster bisque
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup grated cheese, such as Gruyere or Parmigiano-Reggiano
4 tablespoons butter
1. Boil the celery in salted water until tender. Drain, and mix with white sauce and grated cheese.
2. Butter a dish with half of the butter. Add the celery/sauce/cheese mixture, cover it with bread crumbs, and dot it with the other half of the butter. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes or until the crumbs are brown.
