Bacon Wrapped Green Bean Bundles

Do you like that caramelized taste of a holiday honey baked ham... this is a similar way to rekindle that memory with a teriyaki twist.
Ingredients
  Green beans 1 Pound
  Bacon strip 5 Ounce
  Melted butter 3 Tablespoon
  Brown sugar 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Garlic salt 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Soy sauce 1⁄8 Teaspoon
Directions

*frozen green beans can be used for this recipe. however, fresh is best. but DO NOT use canned.

*optional* i always cut the ends off of my fresh green beans.. some like the ends on. either way is fine.

DIRECTIONS:

Boil green beans in large pot till tender. IMPORTANT: green beans need to stay long. Meanwhile, fry the bacon in a skillet over med-low heat. You want the bacon to cook ‘soft’. Do not ‘crisp’ the bacon. Place aside on paper towels to cool and reduce grease. Then cut the strips into halves.

After beans have been drained, i like to put a little butter in the post to melt on the beans (this is optional and not included in the ingredients above). In a large 13x9x2 pan lay one of the ‘half’ pieces of bacon and place several beans (about 6-7) then wrap the bacon around the bundle of beans and secure with a toothpick. Continue doing this till the beans are gone.

Next, melt the 3 tsp of butter in small sauce pan. add brown sugar, garlic salt and soy sauce and mix continuously over med-high heat. Once completely blended, brush over the bundles with a ‘cooking’ brush until mixture is gone.

Bake AT 400 degrees in the oven for 10-15 minutes.
