Candied Bacon Wrapped Water Chestnuts Recipe for New Years Eve
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • 16 oz sliced bacon
  • 3 (5 oz) cans water chestnuts
  • wooden toothpicks
  1. Preheat your over to 350 degrees.
  2. In a small saucepan combine the ketchup, brown sugar and Worcestershire sauce and heat until bubbly and then remove from heat.
  3. Cut your bacon strips into thirds. Don't use too think of a cut of bacon for this or it wont get crispy.
  4. Wrap each water chestnut with a slice of bacon and secure with a toothpick.
  5. Dip each bite into the sauce to coat thoroughly and place into a baking pan.
  6. Repeat with the remainder of the bacon and water chestnuts.
  7. Be careful not to crowd the pan. As these appetizers cook, the bacon fat renders and will fill the bottom of the pan. If you place too many in your baking dish you will end up with soggy bites.
