I made these for a New Year's eve party and they disappeared quickly. I followed the hints of some previous reviewers and baked them for a total of 45 minutes, turning them over after the first 20 min. Also, I made the sauce using egual parts of mayo, Heinz chili sauce and brown sugar, then added about l Tbsp. of hot pepper sauce for some zing.... very delicious!


Holy cow! I, too, thought this was a strange combination of ingredients. After one taste, though, I can see why this one has such great reviews! I took these to an appetizer party last night and they were gone almost instantly. I followed what others did and used a whole waterchestnut (2 cans) to 1/2 a slice of bacon (1 lb). I cooked for 45 minutes to get them crispy and turned the midway to allow even browning. I poked toothpicks after cooking so everyone would have an easy time dipping into the sauce and am glad I did. This one is a keeper!


These went over really well at my birthday party. I cut the bacon into thirds and wrapped them around a halved chestnut. I made them one day in advance. First,I baked them on a broiling pan for about 30 minutes and then turned on the broiler for about 10 minutes to ensure they turned out crispy. I let cool and then tossed them in the sauce. I refridgerated until 30 minutes before I was expecting company, popped them in a 350 oven for about 25 minutes and served hot.
