Green Bean Bundles

This has become a holiday tradition at our house. The lowest sodium bacon I can find is a Safeway store brand with 60 mg of sodium per slice. We also usually partially pre-cook the bacon so it will be crisper.

1 1/2 lb Fresh Green Beans
1/2 c Unsalted Butter,Melted
1/2 c brown sugar
1/2 t garlic Powder
8 sl Low Sodium Bacon

Wrap 8-10 green beans in 1/2 slice bacon and secure with toothpick and place in 9x13 glass baking dish. Make glaze with butter, brown sugar and garlic powder and pour over bundles. Bake at 375 covered for 40 min; uncover and bake 5 minutes longer.
