Cook bacon. Cook 12 pieces of bacon until they are starting to crisp but are still flexible. Set finished bacon on a paper towel-lined plate to remove excess grease.
Cook green beans. Par cook the green beans by placing them in boiling water for approximately 4 minutes. Remove from boiling water and run under cold water to stop the cooking process. Pat dry with a paper towel to remove all of the excess water
Preheat oven. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Prepare glaze. In a small bowl mix together melted butter, brown sugar, and garlic powder tp make your brown sugar glaze.
Prepare bundles. On a parchment paper lined baking sheet, bundle the partially cooked green beans into piles of 5-6 beans. Wrap each bundle in a slice of bacon using a toothpick to hold the bacon around the green bean bundle.
Brush and bake. Brush each green bean bundle with the brown sugar glaze. Bake for 7-10 minutes or until the bacon is crisp.
