Another delicious casserole that was a hit with my family. They loved the crunch of the Panko's and the cheesy layer beneath. I served alone, but would be great with a tossed salad or a vegetable on the side.

Enjoy!

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 350 degree F.

Spray an 11 x 7 baking dish with non stick cooking spray or grease.

Cook bacon crisp and drain, crumble.

Par cook celery in microwave, until tender crisp, or could saute in a little butter for a few minutes. If you like it on the crispy side, can add it raw. I prefer to par cook for a few minutes.
