Bacon Wraps



Water chestnuts
Sweet & sour sauce

Homemade sweet and sour sauce:

1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup brown sugar
Squirt of mustard
4 Tbsp soya sauce


Line a cookie sheet with tin foil. Wrap a piece of bacon around a water chestnut, and hold together with a toothpick. Spoon sweet and sour over top so that each wrap is covered.

Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes (Ish – it depends on your oven). Keep an eye on them so that they don’t burn.

Try to stop at one. It’s impossible.

  2. We did a similar dish, but used shrimp instead of waterchestnuts and teriaki instead of sweet n sour sauce. I will try the sauce with the shrimp and bacon next time.

    Hope this is a great year for you and your family.


  3. I love these things! The only problem…I could eat the whole batch meself. :) My husband’s new NASCAR cookbook even has them in it. How cool is that?!
    Happy New Year.

  4. Thank you so much for this, very interesting. I’ve been looking high and low for a specific pasta dish that my wife and I had on our very first date . I found an entire website dedicated to just pasta recipes (you might be interested in that site for ideas) but so far still no luck in finding the one! Damnit… I’m fairly certain it had muscles in it.. Any ideas? Nevermind, I will keep searching~!
