Faux GF Rumaki

What more could you ask for than fake food? Actually Rumaki is any food wrapped in bacon and broiled, (wiki) so this qualifies as the real thing, but I call it fake because I've eaten the real thing and while this recipe is quick, easy and less gross to make, it tastes nothing like the real McCoy.

The real mcCoy was made by the Mother-in-Law in her pre-Vegetarian days and it involved chicken livers and more time and more mess and more delicious... but in lieu of that, here is this.

Easy Rumaki

Slice a pound of bacon in thirds across the front. Roll each third of a slice around a whole (canned) water chestnut and secure with a toothpick. Bake at 350 20 minutes and freeze for later, or using your turkey baster, suck up and squirt this sauce atop and bake another 20 minutes.

3/4 cup ketchup
1/2 cup brown sugar combined and warmed in the microwave until fluid.
