Bacon Wrapped Water Chestnuts

This recipe was contributed by Sarah McKenna.  This is the ultimate party food.  So decadent.  YUM!

Bacon-Wrapped Water Chestnuts

Whole Water Chestnuts
(They come in a can in the Asian food aisle.  There were about 15 each in the cans that I bought.)
(1/2 slice per water chestnut)
Soy Sauce

Drain water chestnuts and soak in soy sauce for at least 30 minutes.  Cut bacon slices in half.  Wrap each water chestnut in half of a slice of bacon and use a toothpick to secure.  Lay them on a cookie sheet.  (Cover the cookie sheet with aluminum foil if you'd like to avoid a horrible clean up job.)  Broil until they look crispy.  Remove from oven.  Carefully flip them all over.  (Use the toothpicks.)  Broil again until the second side also looks crispy.  Serve.
