A sweet glaze coats these crunchy appetizers that get gobbled up at parties as soon as I put them on the plate.

  • 1-1/2 pounds sliced bacon
  • 3 cans (8 ounces each) whole water chestnuts, drained and halved
  • 1-1/2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup ketchup

  • 2. Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 30-35 minutes or until bacon is crisp, turning once; drain.
