Bay Scallops are smaller than Sea Scallops and tend to be sweeter. Adapted from All Recipes. If you like a kick of spicy goodness in your food, add a 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper to the bread crumbs.

Delicious, ultra-easy dinner. If you serve this with brown rice, between the fiber and the richness of the scallop topping, it is more filling than you'd think. In retrospect, I think that 4 servings are correct. I took 1/4 for myself and needed to save some for tomorrow. Just serve some other non-rich stuff with it for the bigger eaters. Did I say how quickly it went together? I love recipes like that.
