What you’ll need:
- 2 cans of whole water chestnuts
- 1 package of bacon, cut into halves
- 1/2 cup soy sauce
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Rinse and drain the water chestnuts. In a small bowl, soak them in soy sauce for an hour.
They’ll get a rich dark colour while they’re soaking, and absorb the soy sauce flavour.
Slice the bacon strips in half.
Wrap each water chestnut in a half piece of bacon.
Secure with a toothpick.
Arrange on a foil lined rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 30-40 minutes, checking regularly to make sure they don’t burn.
