Equipment

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat over to 325 ℉.
  • Cut bacon in half. Mix brown sugar and dry mustard in a small bowl.
  • Take one water chestnut at a time and wrap the bacon around it, securing with a toothpick.
  • Drop the wrapped water chestnut into the bowl (you can do several as a time, how ever many will fit with room to move the dry mixture) and use a spoon to coat each piece. Make sure you get all the sides and the ends as well.
  • Transfer the water chestnuts to a baking sheet or dish that is lined with either tin foil or a silicone mat.
  • Once you get through all of them, take each water chestnut and run them through the dredging process a second time. Start on one end and work your way over to make sure you hit them all. (Faster, easier way: wrap them all, throw them on the sheet or in the dish, and throw all the topping across the water chestnuts).
  • Bake for approximately 30 minutes. Cook until the bacon is starting to render but before they are overdone.

Notes

Turkey bacon will cook faster and be a little dry as there is less fat.
If you want them to be sweeter, use 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/4 cup dry mustard.
