Ingredients:
24 strips bacon, cut in half (Canadian bacon or prosciutto)
1 cans whole water chestnuts
1 cup reduced calorie ketchup
1 cup honey
24 toothpicks
parsley (optional)
sliced oranges (optional)

Directions:
Wrap one-half slice bacon around one whole water chestnut, secure with toothpick.  To cook: Preheat skillet over medium heat (350°F/180°C for Electric Skillet). When heated, place bacon wrapped water chestnuts in pan; cover. After about 5-7 minutes turn. Repeat the process until bacon is cooked to desired crispness. When finished cooking, drain grease from pan, reduce heat to low (simmer for Electric Skillet).  While chestnuts are cooking, combine ketchup and honey in mixing bowl. After grease has been removed from skillet, pour mixture over wrapped chestnuts; cover.  Continue cooking on low heat about 10 minutes, turn occasionally to glaze. Garnish with parsley and sliced orange.
