Heaven on a plate. Can be an entree or serve one scallop per person for an appetizer. This comes together very quickly for an elegant meal.

whats not to love.. scallops are one of my favorites!! i ended up cooking them on the bbq cuz my bf prefers them that way. i served the brie sauce on the side for dipping...i really liked it but it made much more than we needed...next time i think a quarter of the sauce recipe will do. i am going to try to tweak it so that i can use it as a dip for a wine & cheese party i'm having this weekend. thanks! zwt4!

This is a fabulous dish! I made it as an appetizer using canadian bacon instead of regular bacon. I used a 1/2 tsp more olive oil instead of the drippings. Had a bit of a time getting my breadcrumbs to stick to the scallops as I always pat them very dry before cooking. This sauce is over the top, special occasion fare. They were served with Herbed Focaccia Bread, a salad and Fire Baked Bananas. Wonderful splurge meal! Made for ZWT 4.
