6 strips bacon, partially cooked (1-1/2 to 2 minutes in microwave) garlic salt to taste
4 tablespoons butter, melted

Place bundles on greased baking sheet side by side. Sprinkle each bundle with garlic salt and pour melted butter over each. Sprinkle with brown sugar. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until bacon is crisp. Serve hot with a spatula on a platter. Serves 6.
