Green Bean Bundles

4 cans whole (not cut) green beans OR 144 fresh green beans (I grab a bunch of handfuls and estimate)
6 strips uncooked bacon
1 1/2 sticks butter
1 1/2 cups brown sugar

If you have fresh green beans, boil them until they are overdone.  You will want your finished product relatively soft.  If you have canned beans, you can skip this step.

Cut the bacon strips in half so you have 12 half strips.  Collect 12 beans in a bundle, and wrap a piece of bacon around it.  Set in 9 by 13 baking pan so that ends of bacon are face down (so bundle stays intact).  Some recipes tell you to secure with toothpicks, but I have never had to.
Repeat until you have 12 bundles in the pan.

Melt butter and combine with brown sugar.  Stir until smooth.  Pour over beans.      

Bake for 45-50 minutes in 375 degree oven.  When finished, broil for a few minutes until the bacon is done.
