3/4 pound fresh green beans
4 strips of bacon.. maybe more
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt or use fresh minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
3-4 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons brown sugar
Preheat oven to 400°
Trim the ends off the green beans and seperate into bundles of 8-12
Cut slices of bacon in half lengthwise
Wrap one piece of bacon around each bundle, half the length should do the trick. Arrange on a cookie sheet.
In a small saucepan, melt butter.
Add garlic, black pepper, and brown sugar. The wonderful aromas should be FILLING your kitchen by now.
Generously brush each bundle with the butter mixture. Add an additional bit of pepper to the top of each one.
Place them in the oven and bake at 400° for 15- 20 minutes or until bacon is crisp. And if the ends on the green beans blacken, don't worry, they taste amazing!
