Bacon Wrapped Water Chestnuts created by Lavender Lynn

These are a delicious appetizer. Sweet and crunchy. Give them a try, they are really good. I got this recipe from a friend, not sure where they got it from.

    Delicious: my dinner guests tonight loved these! I scaled back the recipe to serve five, which four of us devoured without difficulty! And I really appreciated being able to prepare these largely in advance. Being in basically unfamiliar territory, I made these pretty much to the recipe - except for using wine instead of water in step four. Thanks for sharing this truly delicious recipe, KaraRN. Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders. I'll certainly be making these again!

    I also didn't have any pimientos but this dish didn't suffer for it. Very good and my boys loved them (even though they couldn't figure out what was in the middle!)

    This is very good. I followed recipe exactly except I didn't have any pimientos. I will make this again. Made for Photo Tag 2007.
