Bacon-Wrapped Green Bean Bundles

Chop shallots (2 tablespoons) and combine with soy sauce, brown sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in medium saucepan on medium-low; simmer and stir 2–3 minutes or until the consistency of syrup. Remove from heat; whisk in butter until blended.

Gather 10–12 beans into a bundle; wrap 1 bacon slice around center and place seam-side down on baking sheet. Repeat with remaining beans. Coat top of beans with spray; season with salt and remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Bake 4–5 minutes or until bacon is lightly crisped.
