I love the idea of this recipie, but I hated the taste. It was way to salty! I would definitly tell you to use a differant recipie for this. sorry!

Easy and yummy! I did marinate the bacon in a soy sauce/ brown sugar base for 10 minutes before assembly. Received great reviews. Doesn't get much easier for something that tastes complex.

Sooo easy and delicious! Great party appetizer. To cut down on grease, I place a cooling rack on my baking sheet and bake the chestnuts on that.

This is my signature dish. I bring this to all our gatherings. Everyone loves to eat this. I cut some of the larger water chestnuts, so that people can just pop them into their mouths. I also cut a package of bacon into thirds. Everyone loves this !!

I used what I had on hand, KC Masterpiece Honey-Teriyaki Marinade with Sesame sauce, and these things turned out DELICIOUS. I didn't have time to marinate, so I just wrapped the water chestnuts in bacon and drizzled the sauce over the top. (One bottle of sauce was more than enough for a double batch.) I did drain these about half-way through cooking, and cooked a little longer so bacon would be crisp. Even though these were great, I'll bet they'd be even better when they're marinated.

These were very good. Everyone raved about them. Easy to make. A little too salty, but that's just the teriyaki sauce. Next time will look for low-sodium ingredients.

I usually soak water chestnuts in low sodium soya sauce briefly. ( if they are too large I cut them in halves. and only wrap with enough bacon to wrap around water chestnut once. ) Teryaki was a nice change !
