These are great. I have been making them forever. The only thing I do different is make half with water chestnuts and half with pineapple chunks. With the pineapple you get that delicious "sweet and salty" thing.

I thought these were great. Everyone ate them up super fast and I had to make more. I love the soy flavor and didn't think it was too strong. I even made more of the glaze and poured it over the top. Thanks Karen!

These were good. I heard about this idea on tv and decided to look here. I didn't like the strong soy flavor, so I added 2 tbs of honey to the sauce. I think this would be good with some peppered bacon too. I am sorry the picture is so small, it is from my phone. Thanks :)
