Step by Step Directions
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Cook bacon on the stovetop until slightly cooked (You don’t want it crispy). Reserve any drippings.
Trim and wash green beans. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add baking soda.
Add green beans and cook 3 minutes until tender crisp. Remove from boiling water and place in a bowl of ice water to stop cooking.
Dab beans dry and toss with reserved bacon drippings (about 2 teaspoons), garlic powder and salt & pepper to taste.
Cut each slice of bacon in half and wrap around about 6-8 green beans, secure with a toothpick and place on a parchment lined pan.
Combine brown sugar with 1 tablespoon of water and lightly brush over each bundle.
Roast 20-22 minutes or until bacon is crisp and beans are lightly roasted.
