Appetizers Cookbook

Watermelon Rind Appetizers

1 jar watermelon pickles
1/2 to 1 lb. bacon
1 can whole water chestnuts

Cut bacon slices in half. In the middle of each slice, put a water chestnuts and then a watermelon pickle (you may have to cut the pickles in half, sometimes they are too big). Bring each side of the bacon to the top of the pickle and put a toothpick in the top. This holds the appetizer together. Put on jelly roll pan. Broil until bacon is done. These are very, very hot, so don’t burn the top of your mouth.
