This is not the traditional bacon-wrapped water chestnut recipe. Once you wrap the chestnuts in bacon and bake them, you will coat them with a delicious brown sugar sauce. These tasty little appetizers will go fast so be sure you make enough. Also, wonderful as leftovers.


    8-oz. cans sliced water chestnuts, drained and rinsed
    2 tbsp. soy sauce
    1 lb. bacon, sliced into 1/3's
    1/3 cup ketchup
    1/3 cup dark brown sugar
    1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
    Nonstick cooking spray


1. Combine the water chestnuts and soy sauce in a resealable plastic bag. Marinate at room temperature for at least 30 minutes.
2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

5. Coat each bacon-wrapped water chestnut in sauce and place on baking sheet.
