Bulgur and Celery Bake (D, TNT)
Source: Unknown
Serves: 6

2 cups celery, chopped
1/4 cup chives or onion, chopped
1/2 teaspoon celery seed
1/2 teaspoon salt or Greek Seasoning
1 cup bulgur/bulghur/burghul
1/4 cup oil
1-1/2 cups milk
1-1/2 cups water
1 cup cheese, grated
1 cup whole wheat bread crumbs

In large ovenproof skillet sauté celery, chives, celery seed, salt, and bulgur in oil until celery becomes soft. Stir milk and water together and add to sautéed mixture. Simmer partially covered until most of liquid has been absorbed.

Stir in 3/4 cup of the cheese and sprinkle the rest on top, followed by the bread crumbs. Dot with butter.

Bake at 325°F for 10 to 15 minutes, until sizzling and firm.

Poster's Notes:
For the cheese, we use sharp cheddar cheese.

This is a recipe from one of my vegetarian cookbooks, not sure which one any more. We have been eating this since my oldest was about 4 and he'll be 40 this year. That's why I can't remember where it came from.

Hope you enjoy this as much as we do. It is great served with a salad and any other variety of vegetables, and something like a cheese garlic bread.
