From My SIL, Suzanne..........
Here is a recipe for an appetizer that my dad brought over last Christmas everyone loved them. Nana and Jackie went nuts over them...they couldn't eat enough...it is an appetizer...not sure if it is what you are looking for, but in any case, you may want to try them sometime. Love you...
Bacon & Water Chestnuts
2 - 5 oz cans drained whole water chestnuts
1 lb bacon (thin sliced & cut in half)
~Cut any large water chestnuts in half and wrap in bacon using toothpicks to hold.
~Place in 9 X 13 baking dish and bake @ 350 degree for 1 hour.
~Drain grease off.
(Can do the night before and finish up with sauce next day)
~Mix 1 cup white sugar with 2/3 cup catsup, then pour mixture over baked water chestnuts and bake approximately another 30 minutes longer
~ Be careful not to let the sugar burn, so keep checking on them during the 30 minute. ENJOY
