Holidays, or really any day! These bacon covered water chestnuts are so amazing! Best Appetizer and super easy + cheap too!
I wish I could claim this recipe, many years ago my friend Sam shared these with me and they are a staple! We normally have bacon on hand and cans of water chestnuts last so long it’s easy to have in the pantry.
* Foil for pan
Let’s get ready to make these bacon covered water chestnuts!
Here is what you will start with. First you can preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Then get your cutting board, knife, and can opener out.
Open your can of water chestnuts and drain and rinse them well.
Open your bacon, and it’s time to put these bacon covered water chestnuts together.
Cut the bacon in three sections.
Then you will place your water chestnut on the bacon.
Wrap your water chestnut and then use a toothpick to hold it together.
Place your bacon covered walnut chestnuts on a greased pan, for easiest clean up line with foil!
Time to bake for 25 min.
While your water chestnuts are baking, mix your ketchup, brown sugar, and worcestershire sauce.
** Place it directly in the pan for less clean up, images to show it better.
TIP : YOU CAN ALWAYS SKIP THIS STEP AND USE BBQ SAUCE. Thanks Molly.
Turn the pot on medium heat, and cook for around 5 minutes or till the brown sugar is not visible.
Once your bacon covered water chestnuts are complete, you can either pour the sauce on or dip them. I prefer to dip them.
Now you put back in the oven and cook another 25 minutes and they will be done!
I just love this recipe so much and I hope you enjoyed it too!
