Bacon-Wrapped Water Chestnuts

So how could I end a week filled with pig artifacts without a recipe using bacon? I couldn't.

Bacon-Wrapped Water Chestnuts

2 cans (8 ounces each) whole water chestnuts, drained
16 slices thick-cut smoked bacon, halved crosswise

1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
2. Wrap each water chestnut with a piece of bacon and secure with a toothpick (push the toothpick all the way through the water chestnut to the other side).
3. Place the water chestnuts on a baking sheet so the water chestnut is touching the sheet rather than the bacon. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes or until the bacon is cooked and crisp.
4. Drain briefly on paper towels and serve hot or warm.

Makes 32 pieces
