Southern Bacon Wrapped Green Beans

I have many favorite foods. It's a symptom of loving to eat. I'm going to share, with you, one of the most delicious Thanksgiving dishes, bacon wrapped green beans!! Uncle Ken would ALWAYS bring them for Thanksgiving and Christmas. It was always my favorite. That and mom's sweet potato casserole with double praline topping, none of that marshmallow yuckness. mmmm... and harold's peanut butter fudge, and tina's broccoli casserole. I digress... Here's the recipe.

What you will need:
a big bag of fresh green beans, with the tips cut off.
a package of bacon, not thick cut, with each strip cut in half.
half a stick of butter or so, melted.
a 1/2 cup of brown sugar
a couple pinches of garlic salt
a tsp. soy sauce

How to make them:
Boil the green beans for about 8 minutes. They need to be slightly cooked.
Let the beans cool. Wrap 5-6 of them in each half strip of bacon. Place each bundle in a 13x9 pan.
In a bowl mix the melted butter, brown sugar, garlic salt, and soy sauce. Pour this over the green bean bundles. Cook at 375 for about 15-20 minutes, or until the bacon is cooked to your liking! After they finish cooking, transfer them to another pan or dish. They get kind of soggy if they sit in the juice too long.
