Bacon Wrapped Water Chestnuts

Bacon Wrapped Water Chestnuts is one of my favorite appetizer recipes. My Mom made these for special occasions and holidays when we were growing up.

Bacon Wrapped Water Chestnuts

As a child I always thought of it as for “special occasions” since it was served with a toothpick. It is funny how you associate special occasions with food that you don’t eat with a fork. I have fond childhood memories of our family enjoying this recipe on New Years Eve.

When I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease I thought my days of enjoying this dish were over. However this recipe can easily be gluten free! Just be sure to use a gluten free bacon.  I make this recipe for Christmas Eve every year. It is always the first dish that is gone and everyone loves it. I hope you enjoy it as much as our family does.

Simply preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  Cut your bacon in 1/2 (down the middle) and then wrap each whole water chestnut with a piece of bacon and secure with a toothpick. Bake for 30 minutes and then drain off the grease. Baste with sauce. Bake another 30 minutes basting every 10 minutes. Serve warm.
