Bacon Wrapped
Water Chestnuts

One of my favorite appetizers
is bacon wrapped water chestnuts.
There's something about bacon
and the crunchiness of water chestnuts
that when they come together taste great!

1 pound bacon
2 (8 ounce) cans water chestnuts
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
3/4 cup ketchup

Soak 35 wooden toothpicks in cold water.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Cut package of bacon in half.
Wrap one half strip of bacon
around each water chestnut,
finishing it off by securing
it with a toothpick.
Bake wrapped water chestnuts
in a a shallow dish or
baking sheet for 20 minutes.
While water chestnuts are baking,
in a small bowl mix brown sugar,
mayonnaise, Worcestershire sauce,
ketchup, and hot sauce.
When wrapped water chestnuts
are done baking, remove from
oven but do not turn off heat.
Transfer the water chestnuts to a
paper towel covered plate to
soak up bacon grease.
Carefully clean up baking dish
by wiping down with paper towels.
Place the water chestnuts back
on the baking sheet and
pour sauce all over them.
Bake for an additional 30-40 minutes
or until bacon is crispy.
Transfer to serving plate and
serve hot with toothpicks intact.
