This was a hit! I made these for a party last weekend and they were all gone before everyone even showed up (no, I didn't eat them all myself, although it was hard!). I didn't use the pineapple because I wasn't looking for a sweet appetizer. I found the water chestnuts in a can in the Asian section of the supermarket (there were maybe 20 in a can). I bought them whole and cut them in half and cut the bacon into thirds. This way, I not only made more but they were the perfect pop in your mouth size. Definitely make! They were loved by all, even my brother who thinks I'm trying to kill him everytime I experiment with something different. He ate more than anyone else!
