Today Recipes | Bacon Wrapped Water Chestnuts Recipe Soy Sauce Brown Sugar – Michael might possibly be quite patient with me. He lets me feed him items that I’m keen on and he does not necessarily love, and meanwhile I rarely lead him to things he wants that I can’t like (like tacos). From time to time I must tennis ball so the boy a bone. This time around, that bone was these bacon wrapped water chestnuts.

When we had arrived home for Christmas, at his dad’s house, his stepmom (Jeanne)’s sister-in-law-type-person made some bacon wrapped water chestnuts. And Michael won’t shut up about them. He was all “If you have made these for me personally I couldn’t survive mad.” and later on, “Ahhh remember those bacon wrapped water chestnuts? I miss them.” plus the less subtle “MAKE ME THEM, WOMAN!” (ok…maybe these bankruptcies are not direct quotes). Anyway, one day I saw a recipe for his obsession on The Girl Who Ate Everything and I said, “Hm, you would like it if I made these for yourself, huh?” and he investigated me similar to a puppy dangling a goody when in front of his nose. The idea was just a matter of time. So that they can raise his spirits on Easter (since we are usually in NYC and not with our families) I made him these bacon wrapped water chestnuts.

Obviously, he loved them. He did remark that this recipe he’s familiar with has more of a barbecue sauce flavor, so the next occasion I’ll try putting some inside the marinade (Read the recipe below due to this update). He gobbled these little bites up SO quick, and seeing how happy I’d made my boyfriend helped me happy too 🙂

So see, make these and you together with your household will be happy. Proven fact.
