READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by DonnaColorado Johns

These appetizers are always the first to go. Flavors complement perfectly. From Just a Matter of Thyme cookbook. These can be assembled a day ahead and baked later.

Top Review by Merlot

Great appetizers and everyone gobbled them up,. Marinating the waterchestnuts in the soy/ginger really give them a great flavor. These appetizers have a great combination of sweet and salty. Can't wait to make these again. Thanks for sharihg, ConnaColorado Joyhnson!
