bacon wrapped water chestnut

Here’s a great finger food! It’s made of bacon and water chestnuts and has a very simple sauce that you pour over the top after it cooks. Bacon wrapped water chestnuts are a great finger food perfect for an appetizer or for tailgating. The fatty bacon complements the crispness of the water chestnut perfectly and the sauce makes it a perfect balance of fattiness, sweetness, chewiness and crispness.
