Super easy appetizer.....from my mother-in-law. Uses soy sauce, brown sugar, water chestnuts and bacon. That's it! Use whole uncut water chestnuts.


  1. Cut each slice of bacon into three pieces.
  2. Soak drained water chestnuts in soy sauce for at least an hour.
  3. Roll water chestnut in brown sugar.
  4. Wrap in bacon,secure with toothpick.
  5. Bake at 325°F for 20-25 minutes.
  6. Hint: line pan with foil when baking.

These weren't as good as I had hoped. I was expecting a stronger taste and crispier bacon. Sorry!

YUM! One of my all time favorites. No holiday at my moms is complete without these. They don't last long! I have actually never used brown sugar, usually just soak in soy sauce, wrap and bake. I will definitely try the sugar next time we make these! Thanks!
