A’s Kick-A** Bacon-Wrapped Water Chestnuts

31 Dec

The Awesome Brother brought these over on Christmas and they were snarfled up in seconds. Yes, snarfled. He tells me that they’re easy to make and I am happy to report that they are even easier to eat. They’re crunchy. They’re salty. They’re sweet.  Believe me, you want them.

Serves 8.

2 cans whole water chestnuts
2 tb Worcestershire sauce
1 c ketchup
1 c brown sugar
1/2 lb bacon
1 tb hot sauce, optional*


1. Preheat oven 375F.
2. In a medium bowl, combine brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, and ketchup. Marinate water chestnuts for roughly 2 hours in sauce.
3. Cut bacon in half lengthwise & wrap one slice around each chestnut.
4. Secure the bacon with a toothpick and arrange the water chestnut wraps in a large baking dish, leaving room between each chestnut.
5. Bake for 10 – 15 minutes.
6. Take the chestnuts out of the oven and drain off any excess fat from the bacon. Glaze with remaining sauce.
7. Return them to the oven for another 30-35 minutes until the bacon is crispy.
