Bacon Wrapped Scallops

Soak your wooden skewers or toothpicks in water while you prep the bacon and scallops. Plan on about a pound of bacon for every pound of scallops. These are really filling but people can eat a tremendous amount of them because they taste so good!

Plan on a pound of scallops to make appetizers for four people. People will actually tell you they love you when you approach them with a plate of these.

  1. Cut the bacon slices in two parts and precook the bacon a bit by microwaving on a plate wrapped in paper towel. About eight half-slice pieces on a plate should be microwaved for about a minute. This way, your scallops won't overcook as you try to get the bacon crispy.

  2. Wrap the scallops in the semi-cooked bacon while it is still warm from the microwave, otherwise it will get too stiff to wrap without cracking.

  3. Thread the bacon-wrapped scallops on wooden skewers or toothpicks and barbeque or broil in the oven. (Some people like to wrap up canned pineapple tidbits with the scallops. Don't use fresh pineapple for this, the acid in it will make the scallops taste funny.)

  4. Enjoy!!!
