Teresa's notes for this recipe:
My daughter made dinner for us one night and she had these yummy beans. We fell in love with them, now we ask for them every time we have a family meal. They are easy to fix and a great change for plain green beans.

When we make this we slightly cook the bacon, then lay the bacon on top of the green beans in a 9x13" baking dish.....then combine the brown sugar, melted butter, soy sauce, and garlic powder in a small bowl, pouring the mixture over the green beans and bacon.
Then bake uncovered in the 350° preheated oven for approximately 40 minutes.

Next time I think I will do like your daughter and fry crispy bacon and crumble it into the mix before pouring it over the green beans.
