Bacon-Wrapped Water Chestnuts

This recipes is good, quick and easy. I keep bacon in my freezer and water chestnuts handy for this sure hit. Stole this recipe from Kim….had to.  Husbands love this one!

Bacon-Wrapped Water Chestnuts

1 package bacon
1 1/2 cans water chestnuts (whole)-cut in half
½ cup catsup
1/3 cup brown sugar

Slice all bacon in half lengthwise. Wrap 1/2 slice bacon around water chestnut. Secure with toothpick half way through water chestnut. If
the 1/2 chestnut is small , sometimes a 1/3 slice of bacon can be used. It needs to be long enough to wrap once and secure with a toothpick.

Bake at 250 for 1 hour in roasting pan.

Mix catsup and brown sugar. Dip all bacon in sauce. Clean up grease and then put foil down and put them onto foil.

Bake at 250 for 30 minutes more. Turn off oven and leave in oven till ready to serve (up to a couple hours).

Let sit for a few minutes before serving.
