1 ½ lb green beans

1/3 cup light brown sugar

1/3 cup soy sauce

1 pkg bacon

½ cup shredded cheddar cheese


1. Cut vine ends off green beans
2. Fill a large pot with water and bring to a boil. Add green beans and cook 6 minutes. Rinse with cold water to stop cooking process and set aside.

3. Put brown sugar and soy sauce in a small pan and melt together on the stove.

4. Take the green beans lay them on a flat pan and rub the sauce over top of them. The more sauce you add the more flavor. I save some on the side for after cooking (dipping, added rub after etc). Wrap the top with plastic wrap and sit in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours (I marinate over night).

5. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F

6. Cook bacon to bring to a brown (do not over cook, it will cook more in the oven). Make sure you are still able to fold them and then slice them in half.
7. Take 7-8 pieces of green beans and wrap in bacon.

8. Bake in oven for 15-20 min and remove once bacon is fully cooked.

9. Sprinkle cheese on top and put back in oven for 1-2 min (until cheese has melted.

10. Remove from oven and serve!!
