Bacon makes everything better with Lucy Yang's bacon wrapped string beans

NEW YORK (WABC) -- My favorite thing at holiday gatherings - besides desserts - are the SIDES!!! One of my favorite recipes is from my sister.

2-3 pounds of fresh string beans

1 stick unsalted butter,
1 cup brown sugar (a little less is fine)
3 Tablespoons soy sauce

1 tsp garlic salt
Melt together

1. Blanch beans
2. Bundle string beans in bunches of 8
3. Wrap w bacon
4. Use tooth picks to keep together

5. Pour sauce over everything
6. Refrigerate overnight - this is the best part because you can make these ahead of time
7. Next day - bake at 350 degrees
8. Bake 10 mins with foil on
9. Bake 30 mins without foil (or longer if you like it more crispy)
