Even though this is a very old recipe, I thought it might be something new to the "young whipper-snappers" who have recently joined Zaar. It was always a popular appetizer.


  1. Marinate the water chestnuts in soy sauce for 1 hour.
  2. Drain.
  3. Roll each chestnut in the brown sugar.
  4. Wrap each chestnut with a piece of bacon.
  5. Secure with a toothpick.
  6. Arrange on a cake rack in a shallow baking pan.
  7. Bake at 400 degrees F for about 30 minutes or until golden brown.
  8. Drain on paper towels.
  9. NOTE: This can be prepared ahead of time and stored in refrigerator until ready to bake.

What a great alternative to bacon wrapped oysters (en brochette). I love those but some people freak out on the oyster idea. So, I made some non-seafood appetizers like this and they sure went quick. I brought them out onto paper towels to make sure no hot grease was pocketed away! The crunchy sweetened water chestnuts are awesome. Thanks in helping me please everyone!

I made these appetizers for our couple's Bible study get together at Christmas time. I only made one batch. They were gone instantly. When our Valentine's Day get together was approaching these were requested. I also found out that they had been made by several couples in the mean time. They are so easy and everyone loves them.
