This is the way my mother made them when I was growing up. And they were always a treat. The sauce is from another recipe on here but I found that it perfectly balances out the saltiness of the bacon and soy sauce.

These were my favorite of the ones I have tried so far though I would omit the soy sauce marinade because they seemed too salty with the bacon. Loved the dipping sauce with it though. I will definitely make again minus the soy. Thanks for sharing! Read More
