Green Bean Bundles

When my friend Holly served this to us in Little Rock over 15 years ago, we were blown away by the wonderful marriage of flavors.  This is one of our favorites!

2 cans whole green beans (can use 1/2 pound fresh green beans)
8 slices bacon (uncooked)
3/4 stick butter
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 t. garlic powder
1/8 t. pepper

Cut bacon slices in half. Wrap around 4-5 beans and place seam side down in a 9X13″ casserole dish.

In a small sauce pan over medium heat, combine butter, brown sugar, garlic powder and pepper. Heat until bubbly and sugar is dissolved. Pour over beans. Bake covered at 375 degrees for 45 minutes. Uncover for the last 5 minutes. Serves 6.
