Water Chestnuts wrapped in Bacon


1 can of water chestnuts, drained

1 pound of bacon (you may not need the whole pound!)

1 cup of ketchup

3/4 cup of white sugar

Tabasco sauce

1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce

1 tbsp soy sauce



Step 1: Cut each bacon slice into halves. Wrap the bacon around the water chestnuts. Insert toothpick in the middle to secure the bacon and water chestnut.

Step 2: Put each water chestnut on a baking sheet and broil them until the bacon is cooked.

Step 3: To make the sauce, add the ketchup, sugar, few shakes of the Tabasco sauce, Worcestershire sauce and soy sauce in a saucepan and cook until the sugar dissolves.

Step 4: Put the water chestnuts in a casserole dish and pour the sauce over top. Put back in the oven for a few minutes so everything is warmed.

Serve hot.

*For something different, serve plain bacon-wrapped water chestnuts with Thai Dipping Sauce.
