These were very tasty, and I didn't have any left at the end of the night. I wrapped a whole water chestnut in a half slice of bacon and placed them seam down in a glass dish and baked for 30 minutes at 350 as instructed. Then I drained the grease and flipped them over and covered them in a sauce composed of 1/2 cup each of reduced fat mayo, brown sugar, Heinz chili sauce, and 1 tbsp Tabasco. I cooked them for another 30 minutes, then stuck a toothpick in each and served. If I had to do it again, I think I'd add more Tabasco for a bit more kick. I'm also tempted to "marinade" the water chestnuts in soy sauce or something first, just to give them a little more flavor (they felt a little superfluous to the overall dish, flavor-wise). Overall, though, this recipe was a hit!
