Low Carb Cook

  Low carb Bacon Wrapped Water Chestnuts.
I made this one for a party this weekend. IT was a complete hit with everyone! Not super low carb but it's very tasty.

1 pound of bacon, thin sliced and cut in 1/2
2 cans of whole water chestnuts
1/2 cup mayo
1/4 cup "rooster sauce" or other Asian chili sauce
1/4 cup splenda "Blend"
2 tbsp molasses - I cant find a low carb substitute that has the right flavor.

cook the bacon until almost crisp, wrap around each chestnut and pin in place with a toothpick. Mix up the sauce and pour over the chestnuts, bake in the oven at 350 for 30 minutes. All done! I tried to do this with 100% splenda and it just does not taste right. What you are making is a barbecue sauce from the mayo and sugar. the chili sauce makes it spicy and brings an additional flavor to the party. If anyone finds a way of making this even lower carb, please let me know. Most of the sauce ends up in the bottom of the pan. you eat approximately 1/4 of the sauce that is made on the chestnuts.

Name:

I've been a technology guy for all my life.  My father taught me algebra and Electronics starting at 8 years old. I build my own projects (solar panel sun tracker) at 10 and learned about computers and their power.  My father gave me my first computer at age 11, (Kim-1, I had to build it to make it work) and learned assembly language as my first programming language. Went through the Vic-20, C64, Co-co, Ti-99a, etc until the IBM PCjr  hit the scene when I was in high school. Until then I was content with the Altair 8080 that the school had and the TRS-80 model 3 computers  It all escalated from there.  I always enjoy tech, and dreamed of the automated home forever.  Crestron gear gives me a hand firmly in that automated future world I dreamed of. 

Today I program Executive board rooms, Conference rooms, Entire Buildings, homes, and theaters using a multitude of technologies.   Still use my computer programming and electronics and enjoy a LOT of I.T. work and I.T. and I.S. consulting on the side.  This stuff is second nature to me, and I really do enjoy it. I am happiest when I have a challenge in front of me.
