Bacon Wrapped Green Bean Bundles

I’m a little in love with myself right now.  Okay, a lot in love with myself.  Not to toot my own horn or anything, but these are just so darn amazing.  A few months ago, I made a version of these following a recipe I had found, but they were far too sweet for me, because they included too much brown sugar, and no savory additions to counteract the sweetness.  I did some research, revamped, and came up with my own recipe, incorporating butter, brown sugar, soy sauce, and minced garlic – and I’m confident I knocked it out of the park.

I’m just saying.

On a less gloating note, this is a delicious “dress up” of roasted green beans, which are almost as good, but not quite  – because bacon makes everything better, right?
