I found I had to bake in oven much longer than anticipated (about 5 times as long as recipe stated). The taste was pretty good. Read More

I love this chestnut appetizer. I have made it for my son's b-day parties and they are always well received. I mix 1/2 cup brown sugar with 4 Tbsp soy sauce for 2 cans water chestnuts. I like the addition of the brown sugar. I also make sure to marinate them. I will definitely make this recipe again! Read More

I LOVE these. I used 1/2 cup soy sauce and 1/2 cup brown sugar. mixed it all together and then let them marinate. I cooked mine at 375 for 25 minutes because I wanted them very crisp. I made up a nice sauce of equal parts honey and mustard. It was a perfect dip for these gems! Thanks for posting! Read More

These are SO good...they were all gobbled up at my birthday barbeque. I didn't bother marinating the water chestnuts however I did whisk together some soy sauce fresh chopped ginger garlic powder and dried onions. I also par-cooked my bacon just until soft before baking. Then brushed the rolls with the mixture just before baking. Also turn them once during the cooking time. Delicious! Read More
