Number of Servings: 12


    12 strips of bacon
    24 whole water chestnuts
    8 tablespoons Diana’s Gourmet Rib & Chicken BBQ sauce


1. Preheat oven to 350F.

2. Line a cookie sheet with foil for easy clean up! Place a rack on top of cookie sheet so that the grease can drip off of them.

3. Cut bacon in half. Wrap each water chestnut with a piece of bacon and secure with a toothpick. Put on rack on cookie sheet.

4. Bake on middle rack of 350° oven for 30 – 45 minutes. They are done when the bacon is the crispness that you like it.

They can be frozen at this point after you have let them cool.

5. If you are serving immediately, transfer the pieces to a glass baking dish and brush each piece with Diana’s BBQ sauce. Put back in the oven for another 15 minutes.

  • I have made these before but this time used turkey bacon to reduce fat content. It was good. Used shrimp cocktail sauce, creamy horse radish sauce, and ranch dressing as dipping choices in addition to the traditional barbecue sauce. All were yummy. - 2/25/13
