Bacon-Wrapped Water Chestnuts

I can make a meal out of appetizers all day every day. Give me dips. Give me bite-sized. Give me little bits of everything! That’s how our Bunco group did monthly meals. We’d rotate homes and each hostess would put out a buffet of her favorite snack foods. It was the best! We also eat like this during the holidays. And for the Super Bowl. And sometimes on random Sunday evenings.

Bacon-Wrapped Water Chestnuts always go over well, and go fast! It’s the salty/sweet, chewy/crunchy thing, I think. And, of course, everything’s better with bacon! I believe I first stole this recipe from my aunt after a New Year’s Eve party. It couldn’t be simpler!

Bacon Wrapped Water Chestnuts

Over six (wow!) years ago I started this blog with the goal of finding community, and I found it fast! Working with and getting to know other bloggers as true friends on this crazy life journey together, cheering each other in our similarities and differences, was one of the things that kept me going. “Back in the day” we did all sorts of fun recipe swaps, link ups, and group projects. Then Pinterest took over the world and the blogging community just isn’t quite the same.

But thanks to some friends longing for the good ol’ days, we’re back! This month we’re celebrating the holidays together with Holiday Sweets and Savory Treats. Enjoy the following collaboration of recipes sure to please this holiday season!

  1. These look fantastic, Amy! And bacon– oh yeah. I’ll be making these Christmas Eve. :)

  2. Bacon makes everything better! And I love how easy these are for the holidays!

  3. This is a big fav. in our family too. This, along with a sausage/cheese dip, appear most years around Christmas/New Years Eve. I’m not so great at the step where you keep an eye on the oven so it doesn’t burn.
