This is always a hit at our house but I soak the chestnuts in soy sauce and then roll in brown sugar instead of using white sugar. Then wrap with bacon and fasten with toothpick. This is great microwaved also (and saves time!) Read More

These were only ok. I was expecting these to be a lot better based on the reviews but they were almost disappointing. I'll stick with bacon-wrapped scallops or liver. Read More

Just like my mom's! This recipe was exactly what I was looking for. The longer you marinade the chestnuts the better but as long as they to soak for longer than an hour you're good to go. I also cook the bacon in the microwave for 5 minutes before wrapping the water chestnuts - it cuts down on oven time and there's never any soggy-bacon spots Read More

This is my FAVOURITE appetizer recipe and often make them just for myself! I allow thw w/chestnuts to soak in the soy for a little while and also use brown sugar. Just a tip - to make the (streaky) bacon go further stretch the rashers out with the back of a knife before wrapping it also cuts down on crisping up time!! Read More

I wasn't so sure about making this and I sure am glad I did!! What a hit this was. I did do a few things different..I used maple bacon and I marinated the water chestnuts in soy with a little hoisin sauce. This is a spectacular appetizer. Read More
