This recipe has been one my family has used for decades! I have gone to several parties recently and taken this appetizer with me; they are gone in seconds, and I don’t add anything else to the recipe. The only thing I do different is bake them in the oven at 375 degrees for 20 minutes or until the bacon is crispy.

We have been serving this in our family for decades, but, we marinate the water chestnuts in soy sauce & garlic powder, before wrapping with the bacon. Much more flavourful. Give it a try.

Easy, quick and delicious. At our house, when there is only one left there can be quite a battle.
