So Easy, but Such a Crowd-Pleaser

1 can whole water chestnuts
1/2 strip of bacon for each chestnut (you can use pre-cooked)
Sauce: We like barbeque sauce, French dressing, or Russian dressing, but teriyaki, soy, Zesty Italian, etc. are also possible choices.

Cook the bacon in a skillet or microwave but don't let it get crispy. When it cools, wrap it around a water chestnut and skewer with a toothpick. Set them on a foil-covered broiler pan, brush with the sauce of your choice, and broil until the bacon sizzles and turns crisp.
Make lots, because no one can eat just one of these!
