  • 1

    pound bacon

  • 2

    can (8 ounce) water chestnuts

  • cup packed brown sugar

  • cup mayonnaise

  • cup chili sauce


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.
