  • Wrap a half strip of bacon around a water chestnut and secure with a toothpick.
  • Place in a glass baking dish; bake for 30 minutes at 350° F or until browned.
  • Combine the ketchup and sugar; heat to a boil.
  • After the water chestnuts have baked for 30 minutes, pour the sweet ketchup sauce over the bacon wrapped water chestnuts.
  • Place the water chestnuts back in the oven and bake for an additional 5 or 10 minutes.
  • Eat while hot. They can be kept warm in a slow cooker set on warm or low.
Note: Try precooking the bacon a little before wrapping around the water chestnuts. This will help the bacon get done faster without overcooking the water chestnuts.
