Bacon Chestnut Curls are perfect for a quick hot appetizer when company drops in! I like to keep canned chestnuts on hand in order to throw these curls together quickly. I always have bacon in the freezer too! Or, if you would rather, make the chestnut bacon curls up ahead of time, freeze them on a cookie sheet and once frozen, put them into a freezer bag. This will allow you to pull out only the amount you want to serve! These are always a favorite for happy hours!
