  • Fried Celery

    My grandmother used to make this when I was a kid. I think she made this to use up the veg that was going to go bad. It was really good. I do not have her original recipe but this looks like its close to it.

    Fried Celery
    Origin: Italian


    1 medium bunch celery
    1 1/2 cups bread crumbs
    2 Tbsp. parsley, chopped
    0 salt/pepper
    2 eggs
    6 Tbsp. grated cheese
    1 garlic clove, minced
    COLAVITA extra virgin olive oil


    Seperate celery stalks, scrub with a brush. Trim off root and
    any blemishes, remove strings. If too wide, cut in half and
    then into 3" pieces. Cook celery in boiling salted water,
    covered for 15 minutes or until tender. Drain. In a shallow
    bowl, beat eggs, add garlic. In another bowl, combine bread
    crumbs, cheese, parsley, salt and pepper. Dip celery pieces
    in egg and dredge in bread crumb mixture. Heat olive oil in
    large skillet and saute celery pieces over low flame until
    golden brown on both sides. Add more olive oil if needed.
    Drain on absorbent paper. Serves 5-6.

    Now this is an interesting recipe that sounds like something my grandma would do.......just to use up something before it went bad like you said, or if she was trying to make ends meet and do "stretcher meals" until the next pay check, etc.
