How To Make An Easy Holiday Appetizer! (Bacon Wrapped Water Chestnuts)

How To Make An Easy Holiday Appetizer! (Bacon Wrapped Water Chestnuts)

Last night we took a trip to the Superstore to get some ingredients for a holiday appetizer recipe I wanted to try.

I first found the recipe on the Schneider’s website, but sort of merged it with another recipe that used different sauce ingredients. Here’s the recipe I came up with:

Bacon Wrapped Water Chestnuts


1 8oz/227 mL can whole water chestnuts, drained
1 65g Package Maple Leaf Fully Cooked Bacon
½ cup ketchup
½ cup brown sugar
½ tsp. Worcestershire sauce


1. Wrap chestnuts with bacon, use toothpick to hold in place
2. Arrange in shallow microwaveable dish

3. In saucepan, combine ketchup, sugar, sauce, heat just to boiling, pour over bacon & water chestnuts

4. Let sit for 15 min.
5. Cover w/paper towel & microwave 20-30 seconds or until hot

These were really easy to make (I had never bought fully cooked bacon before, so that was a fun experience ;) and the girls liked them! I liked them too, but found the sauce very flavourful to the point that I probably wouldn't eat more than two (which is probably good since they're just an appetizer ;) haha
