    3 slices Canadian bacon, sliced into 1/2-inch wide strips

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
Using a vegetable peeler or mandoline, slice the zucchini lengthwise to create thin ribbons.
Create an assembly line for the ingredients: Line up the zucchini ribbons, Canadian bacon, barbeque sauce, and water chestnuts on your cutting board.
Lay a zucchini slice flat on your cutting board, then layer on a strip of Canadian bacon, spread on about 1/4 teaspoon barbecue sauce, and place the water chestnut at one end. Roll the zucchini and ham around the water chestnut, then secure with a toothpick.
Repeat with the remaining ingredients, placing the wrapped water chestnuts on the baking sheet.

Bake for 10 minutes, until the bottom side of the water chestnut is golden brown. Transfer to a serving plate and serve immediately.


Serving Size: Makes 16 water chestnuts, 2 per serving.

    We thought these were just okay. I may have sliced my zucchini too thin. That accompanied with the thicker sliced Canadian bacon didn't blend together quite right. The picture looks more like bacon wrapped water chestnuts. - 1/1/13

    I make these (cut bacon slab in three, wrap scallops, sliced water chestnuts, dried off pineapple & apple chunks and dates). In a spray bottle spritz Bragg liquid amino or a low sodium soy sauce prior to & after baking. Skip toothpicks, after wrapping place end of bacon down to prevent unraveling. - 2/2/13

    I do not understand why that bacon is called that- we do NOT have that in Canada. The only time I ever see it is in a Egg McMuffin. We have side bacon and back bacon and neither one looks like that where I live. - 12/19/12
