When I think about holiday food, I always love it Bacon with water chestnut. My mom made an aperitif every year for a Christmas working party. She was preparing a second dish which we ate at home.
Bacon-wrapped water chestnuts recipe
I would like to thank Kikkoman for sponsoring this post.
Since I loved to eat water chestnuts wrapped in bacon when I was a kid, I was sure to swipe my mom's recipe when I was older.
I have made a significant change to this recipe. I add soy sauce to the dish.
Marinating the water chestnuts in soy sauce adds so much flavor.

I recommend using Kikkoman soy sauce for this recipe. It’s simply the best!
Kikkoman's traditionally brewed soy sauce is a major flavor enhancer and brings out the "umami" taste everyone has been talking about.

After marinating your water chestnuts, don't throw away this soy sauce! You'll use the marinade to create a really delicious finishing sauce for the dish.
A word of advice – if you want to reduce sodium, try Kikkoman sodium-free soy sauce – it also tastes good.
