Recipe: Bacon Water Chestnuts

Bacon water chestnuts

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.



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

Make It

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.

Make Ahead:

Water chestnuts can be wrapped with bacon ahead of time. Refrigerate up to 2 hours before covering with dressing mixture and baking as directed.
