What's a better thing to do with your veggies, than to wrap them in bacon? My thoughts exactly. This recipe came from my sisters' lack of ideas for cooking grean beans, and my brother-in-laws' confidence in talking to strangers. While in the grocery store, with green beans in hand, my brother-in-law decided to ask an innocent by-stander how she cooks her green beans. To both their surprise, she had this delectable recipe at her fingertips, stored in her phone and eager to share! My sister made them that night and immediately informed me to spread this word on this tasty and easy side dish. So, here we are. Make these and enjoy!

3/4 pound of fresh grean beans
4 bacon strips
3 tablespoons melted butter
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon minced garlic
1/8 teaspoon soy sauce
Place grean beans in large sauce pan and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Cook uncovered for 8 minutes or until crisp tender. Once cooked, drain beans and set aside.
Meanwhile, in a skillet cook bacon over medium heat until cooked but not crisped, about 3 minutes. Transfer to paper towel.
Place about 12 beans on each bacon strip. Wrap bacon around beans and secure with a toothpick. Place on ungreased baking sheet.
In small bowl combine the butter, brown sugar, garlic, and soy sauce. Brush over bundles.
Bake at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until bacon is crisp.
