Bacon Wrapped Water Chestnuts III
August 01, 2009

The firest time I tried this recipe, I made them for a friend's birthday party, it was a huge hit! So many people raved about how wonderful they tasted. I doubled the batch and didn't have any left! I followed the recipe pretty closely, but I did add a few squirts of Sriracha Hot Chile Sauce to give it a bit of heat (just add to your taste). I only used half a strip of bacon to wrap the waterchestnut. I baked them longer until the bacon was crispy. Then I dipped them in the sauce and baked again for 10-15 longer so that the sauce was more of a glaze. I did not double the sauce, the amount of sauce was plenty, even though I doubled the amount of waterchestnuts/bacon I used. I also soaked the toothpicks in water so they didn't burn or turn dark brown. I served them in a crock pot set on low to keep them warm. Since then, I have received constant requests for me to make these again!
