Bacon Wrapped Water Chestnuts
1/4 Cup Soy sauce
2 Tbsp Rice vinegar
1 Tbsp Sugar
1 Tbsp Whole water chestnuts, drained – 8oz.
10 Slices uncooked bacon slices, cut in half crosswise
Instructions and Notes:
Combine the soy sauce, rice vinegar, and sugar in a medium bowl. Add the water chestnuts and mix well. Cover and let stand at room temperature for 1 hour to blend flavors. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Arrange the bacon slices in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes, until partially cooked. Drain on paper towels. Increase oven temperature to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Remove the water chestnuts from the marinade and wrap a piece of bacon around each one, securing the bacon with a wooden toothpick. Arrange on a baking sheet. Bake 15 minutes, until the bacon is crispy. Transfer to a platter and serve very hot. Enjoy!
