1-2 cans of sliced or whole water chestnuts
1 box of toothpicks
1 bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce OR Aunt Gerry Style Tidbit Sauce

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350. Take uncooked bacon and wrap around water chestnuts. If using sliced, use 2-3 slices depending on size and if using whole ones, use 1. It is best to cut bacon in half before starting and then placing the two pieces in a criss-cross pattern (one on top of the other), place water chestnuts on the center of the bacon and wrap ends up like a package. Use a toothpick to secure. Pushing toothpicks all the way through will allow you to get the BBQ sauce on the underside. When finished, place on a cookie sheet. You should be able to make 16 on one large sheet. If doing for a party, use two sheets. Place cookie sheet with finished tidbits in the oven and cook for 15-20 minutes. Drain the bacon grease from sheet and add BBQ sauce or the following mixture. Put catsup into a bowl and add brown sugar to taste and texture- 3/4 cup to 1/2 cup of sugar. Using a paint brush or cooking brush, brush sauce over tidbits and place back in the oven for 15-20 minutes. Quickly place on a dish and serve.
