Ingredients

2 pounds fresh thin green beans, ends snapped
6 strips bacon, partially cooked (1-1/2 to 2 minutes in microwave) garlic salt to taste
4 tablespoons butter, melted
3 tablespoons packed light brown sugar

Instructions

Steam green beans until slightly tender, but firm enough to easily handle. Gather 6-10 beans into bundles and wrap 1/2 piece of bacon around center of each bundle. 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.
