Bacon Wrapped Water Chestnuts

Confession time. I snarfed way too many of these. They are addicting and you have been warned. Many thanks to Clawson Live for this recipe. I also have this recipe posted over at Momspark so please visit and check out all the awesome articles over there. Happy weekend!

Bacon Wrapped Water Chestnuts
Makes many servings

  • 3 cans whole water chestnuts, drained
  • 1 lb. package of bacon
  • 1/2 c. ketchup
  • 1/2 c. brown sugar
  • squirt of mustard
  • 1 t. Worcestershire sauce
  • vinegar splash
  • toothpicks

1. Preheat oven to 375-f degrees. Spray a large baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.

2. Cut the bacon into thirds. If you have a sharp knife, just slice through the packaging. Wrap each piece of cut bacon around a water chestnut and secure with a toothpick. Put in prepared baking dish. Continue until all the water chestnuts are wrapped in bacon and are in your baking dish.

3. In a bowl, combine the remaining sauce ingredients and stir well. Pour over the bacon wrapped water chestnuts.

4. Bake for 30-45 minutes. Ovens vary so check them at 30 minutes to be safe. Mine required 45 minutes of baking for the bacon to be cooked through.
