But Bacon Tastes GOOOOOOOD

Alright all you bacon lovers out there (or even the bacon curious), I just HAVE to share this easy and scrumptious hors d’oeuvre recipe with you. (Thank you Jason and Jen for giving it to us years ago!) It’s so mouth watering, Jules Winnfield would set down Mr. 9mm, sit at your table, pop a few, and lick his fingers. Plus, Greg took some kick ass photos of them; it just didn’t seem right to let them sit there unshared in my Picasa program.

Here’s what you need:

1 cup sugar
1 cup ketchup
2 pounds bacon
2 cans whole water chestnuts

Here’s what you do:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Mix the sugar and ketchup and set aside. You’re lovin’ how easy this is so far, huh?
  3. Cut the bacon in half.
  4. Wrap the bacon around a water chestnut (either a whole one or a half one) and pierce with a toothpick to hold it in place.
  5. Put it on a cookie sheet.
  6. Repeat until all bacon and/or water chestnuts are gone.
  7. Bake for 30 minutes.
  8. Remove from oven and baste with the sugar/ketchup mixture.
  9. Bake for another 30 minutes.
  10. Try and stop after eating just one. I dare you.

So the kick-ass pictures:

These might even temp the Dark Knight out of vegetarianism.


  1. This looks so yummy. Mmmmmmm bacon.

  2. I've been waning vegetarian again, but I think I might have to make these...they look wonderful!
