"Rumaki" -- one of the BEST little appetizers you'll ever eat! Make these and watch them disappear!


1 lb. bacon cut down the middle

1 can sliced water chestnuts, drained

1 carton pitted dates

1 bottle Kikkoman’s Teriyaki Baste and Glaze

Take a water chestnut and a pitted date and wrap in a slice of bacon; secure with a toothpick and place on a large baking rack. Do this until you have used all the bacon.   Place the baking rack in a large jelly roll pan.  You may want to line the pan with foil for easier cleanup from the bacon grease that drips down.    You will have a few chestnuts and dates left over.   Bake at 350 for 25 minutes to 35 minutes or until the bacon is crisp.   Transfer to a 13x9 baking dish and pour sauce evenly over the appetizers  and bake another 8  minutes.   Let cool about 10 minutes before serving.  Makes 25 to 30 appetizers.

    1. Linda,

      It's not the healthiest of foods, but they are delicious! I believe that it's okay to indulge in moderation --especially during the holiday season :)
