Not exactly chestnuts roasting on an open fire... but it's a lot more tasty!

Slice bacon in half; wrap one-piece bacon around one chestnut. Skewer with toothpick to hold in place. Broil in toaster or conventional oven, turning frequently, until the bacon is evenly cooked. Serve warm.

Yield: 24 servings.

  • I use only 1/2 a bacon slice for each water chestnut then pour a generous dollop of duck sauce (apricot or peach flavor work best) over each bacon-wrapped water chestnut. Bake or broil until bacon is crispy. The duck sauce adds a wonderfully sweet layer of taste that has been popular with my guests for many years.

  • Forget the sugar, just use Ponzu sauce (it is more flavorful than soy sauce and is used for dumplings). I would cut the bacon slice in half. You couldn't eat more than a few (too much salt and fat). Sounds delicious though!!!!

  • I have been making these for years. The day before, I mix 1 cup Soy Sauce and 1 cup of Sugar. Let water chestnuts marinate overnight before wrapping in bacon.
