Bacon Wrapped Green Beans

This tasty recipe comes from Just Cook Already.  A nice flavor and presentation for green beans.

1 lb. fresh green beans, trimmed
5 strips of bacon cut in half
3 TBS melted butter
1/4 C brown sugar
1 clove garlic - pressed/finely chopped
1/8 tsp soy sauce

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, put a little butter in the pot 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 basting brush until mixture is all used.  Bake at 400 degrees 10-15 minutes.
