Water Chestnut Wrapped w/ Bacon Appetizer Recipe

Nothing can go wrong when you use bacon wrapped water chestnuts as your appetizers. They're quick and easy to make and they taste great! Be sure to make some extra incase you ran out.

The nice thing about this recipe is that you can always change your marinade depending on your personal preference you got on hand. You can even use smoky bacon instead of just plain bacon. Below I also added a variety of Water Chestnut Wrapped with bacon with teriyaki sauce.

Important thing here is you choose a good quality bacon and that you slice the bacon very thin. If you slice the bacon too thick, it wont become crispy. You will be left with a chewy bacon. You can also slice the water chestnuts if they are very large.

You can also try to replace your chestnuts with fresh scallops, mushrooms, or even pineapple.

Water Chestnut Wrapped w/ Bacon Ingredients

1 lb. bacon
4 cans whole water chestnuts
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce (optional)


Teriyaki Marinade

* 1 cup soy sauce
* 2 teaspoons fresh grated ginger
* 1 1/2 teaspoons dry mustard powder
* 3 tablespoons brown sugar
* 2-3 cloves garlic, minced

In a bowl, combine the brown sugar, soy sauce and worcestershire sauce as your marinade. Add water chestnuts and let marinate for 15 minutes. Drain and wrap a half slice of bacon around each water chestnut, securing with toothpicks. Arrange on rack in broiler pan and broil about 4 inches from heat for 2 minutes on each side. Bacon should be crisp.

Bacon slices are cut in half or thirds and wrapped around water chestnuts which have been marinated. Wrap a strip of bacon around a water chestnut and poke a flat toothpick through the bacon and water chestnut. Continue wrapping water chestnuts with bacon until finished. Place each water chestnut that has been wrapped on broiler pan. Cook until bacon is crisp. Mix soy sauce and brown sugar together in bowl. Place each water chestnut with bacon in sauce and marinate for a couple of seconds. Serve hot. Serves 10.
