Sweet and Sour Wrap-Ups

I received this recipe from my mother-in-law and it is always a hit at parties & Bunko!! It is easy to make....just a little time consuming to wrap up all of the water chestnuts. I usually double the amount of wraps that I make and it works well with the amount of sauce. I make a full 11 x 14 dish of wraps and then bake them for 30 minutes. I take the cooked wraps out of the oven and put them into a crockpot. Then cook the sauce in a saucepan until bubbling...pour sauce over the wraps and mix together. Then set the crockpot on low heat to keep warm. Yummy!!


1 lb. lean bacon

2 (8 oz.) cans water chestnuts, drained

1 1/2 c. catsup

2/3 c. sugar

1/4 c. lemon juice

Cut bacon crosswise into thirds. Cut water chestnuts in half. Wrap 1 piece of bacon around each water chestnut. Secure bacon with wooden toothpick. Place in 9 x 13 inch baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Drain off fat. Combine remaining ingredients. Pour over bacon. Reduce heat to 325 degrees. Bake 20 to 30 minutes, basting once or twice. Serve hot. Makes about 54 appetizers.-----------------------------------------
