Green Bean Bacon Bundles

Bacon and green beans go together like peas and carrots. Only better because there's BACON involved. 

1 pound fresh green beans
10-12 slices of bacon
4 T. butter
2 T. light  brown sugar
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/4 t. salt
1/4 t. pepper
1/8 t. onion powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray.

Wash and thoroughly dry green beans. Bundle together 6 - 8 green beans. You can put as many or as few as you like. If you bundle more together you may need to blanch them briefly in boiling water.

Wrap a slice of bacon around the center of the bundle to hold it together. Lay the bundle bacon seam side down on the baking sheet. Repeat with remaining beans.

Heat a small saucepan over low heat. Add butter, brown sugar, salt, pepper, garlic and onion powder  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 minutes more, just until bacon gets crispy.
