You can't go wrong with this classic, made even better with Canadian Cheddar cheese.
Course Hors D'oeuvres & Appetizers
Prep. Time 10 mins
Yields 12 sticks
1/2 cup (125 ml) shredded Canadian Cheddar cheese
1/4 cup (60 ml) Canadian Cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup (60 ml) dried cranberries or
3 large stalks celery
In a bowl, using a spoon, mash shredded cheese and cream cheese until blended. Stir in raisins.
Pat celery dry and cut each stalk crosswise into four pieces, each about 3 inches (7 1/2 cm) long. Spoon cheese mixture evenly into hollow of each celery stick, packing lightly.
Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.
If your family loves dried cranberries, use them in place of the raisins.
Use your favourite shredded Canadian cheese in place of the Cheddar. Try Canadian Brick, Canadian Mozzarella or Canadian Monterey Jack.
