shoyu (soy and wheat soy sauce)
2 (5 ounce) cans
water chestnuts, drained
bacon, cut in half
This is always a hit at our house, but I soak the chestnuts in soy sauce and then roll in brown sugar instead of using white sugar. Then wrap with bacon and fasten with toothpick. This is great microwaved also (and saves time!)
These were only ok. I was expecting these to be a lot better based on the reviews, but they were almost disappointing. I'll stick with bacon-wrapped scallops or liver.
Just like my mom's! This recipe was exactly what I was looking for. The longer you marinade the chestnuts the better, but as long as they to soak for longer than an hour you're good to go. I also cook the bacon in the microwave for 5 minutes before wrapping the water chestnuts - it cuts down on oven time and there's never any soggy-bacon spots
This is my FAVOURITE appetizer recipe and often make them just for myself! I allow thw w/chestnuts to soak in the soy for a little while and also use brown sugar. Just a tip - to make the (streaky) bacon go further, stretch the rashers out with the back of a knife before wrapping, it also cuts down on crisping up time!!
I wasn't so sure about making this and I sure am glad I did!! What a hit this was. I did do a few things different..I used maple bacon, and I marinated the water chestnuts in soy with a little hoisin sauce. This is a spectacular appetizer.
I made this for an open house and everyone raved about them. Best part, they are sooo easy to make. Depending on size of chestnuts, I cut bacon in thirds, Also lined the bacon pan with foil to make clean up easier.
I make this every year for Christmas Eve. Thanks so much Eleanor for sharing it! I've noticed that Reese brand water chestnuts are preferred by my family.
I took these wrap-arounds to a party last night, and they were the hit with everyone! Thanks!
