Directions

  1. Stir the water chestnuts together with the garlic powder and soy sauce in a small bowl. Set aside to marinate for 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  3. Drain the water chestnuts, discarding the soy sauce. Place a pineapple chunk in the center of each piece of bacon, then place a water chestnut on top of that. Fold the ends of the bacon over the water chestnut, and secure with a toothpick. Repeat with the remaining bacon, pineapple, and water chestnuts. Gently toss the bacon-wrapped chestnuts with brown sugar in a bowl, then place onto the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes, then turn the pieces over, and continue baking 15 to 35 minutes longer until the bacon has cooked to your desired degree of doneness. Briefly drain on a paper towel-lined plate, and serve hot.

I made this recipe for an '80s themed party (and called them Kevin Bacon-wrapped pineapples!) I was a little nervous that my guests wouldn't like the water chesnuts, but these were gone way before anything else. I wish I had made more, as everyone was asking for them. Fantastic, easy recipe that I will definitely make again!

Pineapple is the ONLY improvement I need for this old standby appetizer. Using pineapple slices instead of chunks makes it easier to wrap. The pineapple adds enough sweetness and these are salty enough with out soy souce.

This recipe is definitely a crowd pleaser. For a good size crowd, I would definitely make a few batches. I did change a couple things. I doubled the number of waterchestnuts and i cut the bacon in quarters. When you buy the 20 oz can of pineapple chunks, you will still have a few left over anyway. The only downfall is they are very time consuming to prepare.
