Water Chestnuts and Bacon

READY IN: 1hr 35mins
Recipe by Saturn

This was adapted from the Company's Coming Appetizers Cookbook. I use sliced water chestnuts as they make for a more "dainty" appetizer. Prep time includes time to marinate.

Saturn, I made these when our son's friends were over and they were a hit. I have a recipe also for water chestnuts but wanted it to try it with soy sauce for a change and so glad I did. Thank you for a wonderful recipe!!
