Water Chestnut Hors D’oeurves

Another favorite recipe of mine because of a main ingredient – BACON! This is a family favorite that’s even been served at lots of family wedding receptions. And if at a family wedding reception where these are served, you’d better make darn sure you’re in the front of the line or you’ll never even get one. People usually walk away with a plate of 10-12 piled high!

1 pound bacon
2 – 8oz. cans WHOLE water chestnuts
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon mustard
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons butter or margarine
1 teaspoon soy sauce

  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Wrap each chestnut in 1/2 strip of bacon and secure with a toothpick.
  3. Bake for 40 minutes or until bacon is done.
  4. Remove to a chafing dish.
  5. In a small saucepan, combine remaining ingredients over low heat to make sauce.
  6. Pour over chestnuts in chafing dish and keep warm.
