Bacon cut into fourths, water chestnut on top
Rolled and secured with a toothpick and lined
up on a baking sheet.
Top couple of rows have been dipped in BBQ
sauce and the rest haven't. Need to be dipped
and then go back into the oven for a second baking.


3/4 lb. of bacon
2 cans of water chestnuts
1 bottle BBQ sauce

I cut the bacon into fourths, then I wrap each water chestnut and secure with a toothpick. Put them on a baking sheet and cook at 450 degrees for 20-30 minutes until the bacon is almost done. Take out and carefully drain the grease off of the baking sheet. I then put the BBQ sauce into a small bowl a little bit at a time and dip each bacon covered water chestnut into the sauce and put back onto the baking sheet. Then cook another 5-10 minutes being careful not to burn. The more sugar in the BBQ sauce, the quicker it will cook. Remove from oven when bacon looks done. Let cool for a few minutes, then serve. Or make ahead, refrigerate and then microwave to heat when your guests arrive.

I am estimating that 2 cans makes aproximately 60 pieces. I didn't count but when I packed them up to take to the party they all fit into an 8x8 pyrex dish and didn't look like a lot. They got gobbled up fast also.

Your baking sheet will be nasty after baking. Pour some water on it and let it sit for a couple of hours before trying to clean it.
