Ratings and Reviews


I have not made your recipe. I have one that is slightly different though. I use pineapple slices. I prefer to cut them myself to the size I want , I think the chunks are too big on my want to always cut those . I use equal parts of brown sugar and ketchup as the glaze. I make mine for my work Christmas party every year and they go really fast.


Mom has used this recipe for years

Mom has used this recipe for years. Whole water chestnuts can be a bit large, cut the larger ones in half. Also, soak the water chestnuts in the soy/brown sugar glaze overnight before wrapping them in bacon.
