Whenever I attend a potluck, folks always ask me to bring these marks—they've become my trademark. I especially like to prepare them for holiday gatherings.
- 1 pound sliced bacon
- 2 cans (8 ounces each) whole water chestnuts, rinsed and drained
- 1 cup ketchup
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- Cut bacon strips into thirds; wrap a strip around each water chestnut and secure with wooden toothpicks. Place in an ungreased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Bake at 375° for 25 minutes or until bacon is crisp.
- Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine ketchup and brown sugar; cook and stir over medium heat until sugar has dissolved. Remove chestnuts to paper towels; drain. Dip in ketchup mixture; place in a lightly greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Spoon remaining sauce over chestnuts. Return to the oven for 10 minutes. Yield: about 5 dozen.
