Molly Harper's Green Beans

I found this recipe in a Christmas book I read, and these are our favorite green beans ever.  We gave them a perfect 10, and I like them because they are a great way to use up canned green beans, which I always buy a bunch of when they go on sale, and then scramble to use up before they expire :).  Anyway, this recipe is actually called Aunt Linda's "Un-Vegetable" Green Beans, and there is a reason for that.  Since this is holiday food, you don't get calories, but make them anyway, they are awesome!

6 strips thick cut bacon, diced
1 gallon (about 8 cans) canned cut green beans
1 T garlic salt
1 stick unsalted butter
1 c light brown sugar

Brown the bacon, then add in the green beans, garlic, butter and brown sugar.  Bring the mixture to a boil, then simmer and cook for 2-3 hours.  Serve and enjoy the green beans :)
