This is a yummy way to make fresh green beans.
* 10 slices bacon
* 1/2 pound fresh green beans
* 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
* 1/4 cup brown sugar
* 1 tablespoon soy sauce
* 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a 9-by-13-inch baking pan with aluminum foil. Cook the bacon in a heavy skillet over medium heat until partly cooked but not crisp. Drain on paper towels.
Heat a saucepan of water to boiling and add the green beans. Boil for 2 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water. Arrange groups of 4 to 5 beans in the prepared pan. Wrap each with a slice of bacon.
Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the sugar, soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce, and cook for 1 minute, stirring, until the sugar melts. Brush mixture over the bean bundles. Bake about 15 minutes, until the bacon is cooked through.
