Bacon Wraps Recipe
This is a great appetizer, party snack, or hor d’oeuvres
Box of Toothpicks
1 Pound of Bacon, thick sliced is best
2 cans of Water Chestnuts
Thick Teriyaki Sauce*
Cut each piece of bacon in half. Wrap one piece around a water chestnut and secure with a toothpick. Place in bowl of teriyaki sauce, be sure to turn every once in a while so that it’s fully coated. Repeat until bacon and waterchestnuts are gone. Place on a cookie sheet covered with foil and bake at 350 for about 15 minutes. The bacon should look cooked and be fairly stiff.
Serve as finger foods with teriyaki sauce as a side dip.
Substitute flavored soy sauces or other thick sauces such as BBQ sauces. Asian inspired flavors work best.
Thinner cut bacon can be used, but can be overpowered by the sauce and the chestnuts. If you go this route, be sure to reduce the cooking time to ten minutes and don’t soak in the sauce.
*Or Teriyaki Glaze. Thinner teriyaki sauces can be used, but you’ll want to let them soak for a while longer.
