  • 1 pound bacon
  • 2 can (8 ounce) water chestnuts
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup chili sauce


Preparation time 15mins
Cooking time 50mins


Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Cut each strip of bacon in half. Wrap one strip around one water chestnut. Secure with a wooden toothpick. Place in shallow baking dish.

Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 20 minutes.

While the wraps are baking, in a small mixing bowl combine brown sugar, mayonnaise, and chili sauce to make barbecue sauce. After the wraps have finished baking, transfer them (removing them from the grease) to a second shallow baking dish. Pour the sauce over the wraps.

Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 10 to 15 additional minutes, or until bacon is crispy. Serve hot out of dish with toothpicks.
