Bacon Green Bean Bundles with Brown Sugar Glaze

Hubby loved these and said that they are his favorite green beans I have ever made.  Nathan devoured them, Belle enjoyed them, and Jacob... well he liked the bacon.  We will be adding these into our rotation even though they are slightly time consuming.  I tried to make the recipe as simple to follow as possible.  ;-)

8 slices Bacon
1 lb Green Beans (washed and trimmed)
4 tb Butter (1/2 a stick)
1 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
3 tb Brown Sugar (packed)
1/8 tsp Black Pepper

Preheat oven to 400
Bake bacon for 10 minutes (you want it to be slightly brown on edges but able to bend)
Reduce oven to 350
Bring a pot of water to boil (while the bacon cools) and blanch the green beans
You will want them to cook in the boiling water for 3 minutes
Remove and run cold water over them (this stops the cooking)
Melt butter in a small pot
Stir in salt, garlic powder, brown sugar, black pepper
Now you will divide the beans into about 8 per pile
Start by wrapping the bacon around the beans and tuck the ends in the middle
Place in a dish
Pour the butter mixture evenly over the green beans
Cook for 20 minutes
