- 3 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt

Reviews for Bacon-Wrapped Green Beans
"This is an easy and tasty side dish. I have made them a couple of times and everyone wants the recipe!"
"I have never eaten fresh green beans before that I can recall. These were good. The sauce and bacon took away the green flavor. Thanks for the idea!!"
"This is a GREAT recipe! Our family favorite for holidays, standard at Thanksgiving."
"Easy and impressive. To save time I have made plain green beans, poured the sauce over the beans and added the bacon crumbled before serving. This recipe was even multiplied to feed 300 at a wedding dinner."
