Spicy Bluecheese Celery Boats


So, I have a confession to make.... I didn't actually live in the 70's.   But, my husband did live through the 70's and when I asked him what he would consider to be a quintessential 70's appetizer he said, without hesitation, celery boats.  Celery boats!  I immediately started visualizing ants on a log and celery with that disgusting canned pimento cheese spread on top.  Yuck!  But then Emily and got to thinking and we came up with a gourmet version of the old celery boat.  With quality blue cheese and a little spice, this boat is sure to float any party.


  • 2 celery hearts
  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • Frank's Red Hot, to taste (or a similar hot sauce) 
  • diced pimentos

Cut the celery into 3 inch pieces.  Mix the cream cheese and blue cheese together and add Frank's Red Hot to taste.  Spread onto the celery and top with the diced pimentos.
