This is always a hit at our house, but I soak the chestnuts in soy sauce and then roll in brown sugar instead of using white sugar. Then wrap with bacon and fasten with toothpick. This is great microwaved also (and saves time!)


Just like my mom's! This recipe was exactly what I was looking for. The longer you marinade the chestnuts the better, but as long as they to soak for longer than an hour you're good to go. I also cook the bacon in the microwave for 5 minutes before wrapping the water chestnuts - it cuts down on oven time and there's never any soggy-bacon spots

This is my FAVOURITE appetizer recipe and often make them just for myself! I allow thw w/chestnuts to soak in the soy for a little while and also use brown sugar. Just a tip - to make the (streaky) bacon go further, stretch the rashers out with the back of a knife before wrapping, it also cuts down on crisping up time!!
