Step 1

Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment.

Step 2

In a large pan over medium heat, cook the bacon until the slices are just beginning to brown along the edges but are still very underdone and pliable, 4 to 6 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and let cool, then cut each slice in half crosswise.

Step 3

In a small bowl, whisk together the butter, garlic salt, soy sauce, and 1 tbsp. brown sugar. Stir vigorously until sugar is totally dissolved.

Step 4

Divide the green beans into 8 equal portions, about 6 beans each. Gather each portion into a neat bunch and wrap a half slice of bacon around the center to hold the beans together. It may be easier to use a toothpick to hold the bundle together, and they are easily removable when done cooking. Place the bundles on a prepared baking sheet with the secured ends of the bacon underneath.

Step 5

Sprinkle most of the brown sugar evenly over the bundles. Then drizzle the butter mixture over the bundles.

Step 6

Roast until the bacon is cooked through and browned, 20 to 25 minutes. It may still feel pliable but will stiffen slightly once out of the oven. Let stand for 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer the green bean bundles to a warmed platter and serve immediately.

Parchment paper and toothpicks highly recommended.
