I use a 1/2 cup brown sugar or less,that is sweet enough for us. I also cut the bacon in thirds across and use 3 cans water chestnut's.I have tried the other recipes w/mayo or pineapple etc. and always come back to this basic recipe! It is not the holiday's w/o these nugget's!

Have been making these for many years. I use equal parts ketchup and brown sugar and half a strip of bacon per waterchestnut. Broil until bacon is down, place in crockpot, cover with sauce and heat on low until ready to eat. Requested at all carry-ins.
