Last week I posted my Pigs in a blanket recipe. Its a must at our Easter brunch table. Another yummy appetizer we always make is Bacon Water Chestnuts. We have made these for years and they are a favorite food that is being passed down to the generations. I have made these many times and have even once ran out of Miracle Whip and tried Mayo. DO NOT USE MAYO. The chestnuts turn out extremely greasy & if your going to take the time to make these delectable treats follow directions spot on for best results.
BACON WATER CHESTNUTS
What You Need
1 pkg. (2.52 oz.) OSCAR MAYER Fully Cooked Bacon, cut crosswise in half
24 canned whole water chestnuts, drained (I use 2 cans)
½ cup MIRACLE WHIP Dressing, DO NOT USE MAYO, Use miracle whip or miracle whip lite for best results.
½ cup packed brown sugar
¼ cup chili sauce
HEAT oven to 350°F.
WRAP bacon around water chestnuts; secure with wooden toothpicks. Place in shallow baking dish.
MIX remaining ingredients; pour over water chestnuts.
BAKE 30 min. or until heated through. Discard toothpicks before serving.
Kraft Kitchens Tips
Prepare using MIRACLE WHIP Light Dressing.
Water chestnuts can be wrapped with bacon ahead of time. Refrigerate up to 2 hours before covering with dressing mixture and baking as directed.
