Everything is Better with BACON {Bacon Wrapped Brown Sugar Green Beans Recipe}

I saw a recipe on Pinterest for bacon wrapped green beans from "Just Cook Already" last weekend and immediately repinned and grabbed green beans at the store.  When I went to cook and saw the recipe had lot of steps, feeling like a slacker I took the concept and did my own thing..... and they were delicious.... that said, hers might be even yummier with the extra steps so click HERE to try her recipe if you've got the time. 

1 lb. fresh green beans
5 strips of bacon
3 tbsp melted butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 clove garlic diced
1/8 tsp soy sauce
Turn on oven to preheat to 400F.
Boil the green beans in large pot for 5 minutes, drain and let cool a couple minutes {they cool quickly}. Meanwhile, cut the bacon strips into halves. Then wrap the bacon around a bundle of beans and secure with a cooking string until the beans are gone.
In the interest of "dish management" melt the butter in your 13x9 in the oven {should only take a couple minutes} then remove pan from oven, stir in brown sugar, garlic, and soy sauce and mix until completely blended, then one by one add the bundles to the pan rolling in the glaze so completely covered.
I served with steak
& baked potato.... ENJOY :)

Bake at 400 degrees in the oven for 10-15 minutes
