Bacon-Wrapped Water Chestnuts

Had a great class last night with a wonderful group of ladies. Thanks to Carol Thompson for hosting the event. The class was on quick and easy appetizers. I got a special request to make water chestnuts wrapped in bacon. They were a hit last night. No surprises there. These are always a hit and easy to make. Just a suggestion- make more than you think you will need- the disappear quickly.

Bacon-Wrapped Water Chestnuts

20 slices bacon, cut in half

40 whole water chestnuts

hot sauce

brown sugar

Roll half of slice of bacon around a water chestnut and place in a baking pan, seam side down. Repeat with remaining bacon and water chestnuts. Cook in a 400 degree oven for 20-25 minutes or until bacon is well browned. Remove from oven and place bacon rolls on paper towels to drain. Drain off the fat in the pan.  Return bacon roll ups to the pan- or you can place in a fresh baking pan, if you prefer. Sprinkle a little of the hot sauce on the bacon rolls and drizzle with maple syrup and some brown sugar. Return to oven  and bake until caramelized- about 15 minutes- but watch so they don’t burn. Makes 40.

Note: You can make these ahead of time and just reheat when ready to serve. They can also be frozen.
