boil green beans in large pot till tender. 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 13x9 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.
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.
2012 - found these via Pinterest. FABULOUS! Made for Zells' Labor Day family thing and they were the biggest hit! Easy to just not wrap a bundle or 2 with bacon and bake in 2nd dish - still yummy. Damian says that the beans were perfect but the bacon should have been crispier in the final product. (ommitted garlic this time cuz Zells didn't have any.) Next time, cook the bacon as much as possible while keeping it pliable for wrapping. I think it was the first cook on this batch that wasn't cooked enough.
2013 - Have continued to make this for bacon-loving family, but decided that without the saltiness of the bacon, the vegetarian version is too sweet and just not worth doing. Family members still rave, so I'll keep making it for them! :0)
