Ingredients:  
1 pound fresh green beans

10-12 slices of thick-cut bacon *I used regular bacon

2 tablespoons butter

1 tablespoon brown sugar

2 cloves of garlic, minced *I only used one

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with non-stick spray.

Wash and dry green beans, season with salt and pepper. Bundle together about 5-8 green beans, using a slice of bacon, wrap it around the center of the beans to hold it together. Lay the bundle bacon seam side down in the baking dish to hold it together. Repeat with remaining beans. If you have a wire rack to lay them on this will help get crispier bacon, otherwise they sit in the bacon grease, which is ok too.

Heat a small saucepan over low heat. Add butter, brown sugar and garlic and whisk until melted and combined. Using a pastry brush, brush the mixture over top of each green bean bundle. Cover the bundles with foil and bake for 35 minutes. Remove foil and bake for 10-15 (it took more like 25 minutes for me to get the bacon somewhat crisp, and I still ended up putting it under the broiler for a minute) minutes more, just until bacon gets crispy.
