Water Chestnuts and Bacon

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.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Marinate water chestnuts in soy sauce for 30 mnutes to 1 hour. Stir them often to distribute.
  2. Remove chestnuts and coat in sugar.
  3. Wrap bacon around 2 or 3 slices of chestnut, securing with a toothpick. Arrange on baking sheet. Bake in 400°F (200°C) oven for 10-20 minutes until bacon is cooked. May also be broiled.
  4. For variety, try rolling them in brown sugar.
  5. Sugar may be omitted entirely if preferred.

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!!

Yummy, crunchy and flavourful, another great addition to an appy tray. Probably be good with brown sugar too! Thanks for posting!!
