bacon, cut in half
1 (8 ounce) can
packed brown sugar
This is the how I make mine also but I wrap the bacon around the water chestnuts and bake them until the bacon is done. Usually 350 for 10 minutes. Then I put them in my crock-pot and pour the mixture on top. They are easy to serve at a party this way.
I found a better receipe - pre-fry the bacon a little first. make the sauce with a jar
of current jelly and chili sauce.
I did what one reviewer suggested and omited the ketchup. I only sprinkled brown sugar on top. They were delicious - my husband couldn't get enough of them! I did have a little problem with getting the bacon browned so I put the broiler on for a few minutes at the end of the cooking time.
I love this recipe!! I make it with out ketchup, though. All I do is wrap the water chestnuts in bacon and sprinkle brown sugar on them. YUMMMY!! They are addictive, so beware!!
Recipe was great. We had these at our wedding and not one was left. Although, i suggest cooking the bacon in the microwave a few minutes before wrapping, it was easier to wrap and it makes the bacon a little crispier. Just WAIT till they cool a little.
My grandma has been making these tasty little morsels for years. She would do one thing different though. She wrapped the chestnuts in bacon, baked them until brown and then dipped each one in the sauce with a toothpick and arranged them nicely on a plate... So easy, yet so good...
One of my friends always makes these when she has a get together. They are delicious. They are always the first thing gone. YUMMY!
I absolutely love this recipe and it is so easy to make. However, I cut the bacon into thirds and didn't need toothpicks to secure them. I cooked for 30 minutes without the sauce and drained as much grease as I could then used a spoon the pour the sauce onto each one then cooked for another 20-30 minutes. I doubled the recipe for a party and we a good bit of sauce left over so I had to make more later that week. Quick, easy and delicious!!!!!
