"I love making these appetizers at Christmas time. Always well received!! I'm guessing on the servings, depends on the size of the scallops."
Serving Size: 1 (1948 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 1
"i make this often without the sauce. i made it this time as a dipping sauce, well received, as part of a new years buffet"
"New Years Eve 2003 special treat! What a wonderful way to start the new year."
"Fantastic! I used maple bacon, and the flavor was wonderful."
"Easy and very tasty! We had this for supper tonight with rice and broccoli. If you are in doubt about the need to cut your scallops in half go ahead and do it. The smaller ones seemed to taste better than the larger ones."
"A fellow co-worker brought these to a recent luncheon, and I asked her for the recipe. Wanted to check to see if it was here on 'Zaar yet before I posted, and lo and behold~ Here it is! These are FABULOUS appetizers (or in my case, a MEAL!LOL) Also, the folks at work whom are on the Atkins plan really appreciated these little guys! I am adding these to my list of appetizers for the holidays...SUPERB! ~Manda"
"This is so good and so easy to make. The sauce is tasty but the scallops are also good without it. You might want to make more because they go fast!"
"This was really great. My first time making scallops and my family was impressed. Followed the other reviewer's method and made the spinach rice as a side dish. A keeper. Thank you so much."
"Great recipe! Super easy to make. If you don't want to spend as much on the scallops (as it can get pricey to do 2 lbs.) you can halve the recipe and it still makes for a very generous portion. I used peppered bacon and they were a hit at a themed Christmas party potluck, especially with the dudes! I thought they were rich and delicious. Two was a sufficient portion for me because the scallops were huge even after cutting them in half.
Also, I halved all the ingredients except I forgot when I added the broth. So I would say this recipe is pretty full-proof. Even if you make an error you can't go wrong. Even though I added too much broth the sauce was very buttery considering. I'll be making these again."
"Made this last nite and was very good. I did not put a couple of the scallops in the sauce so I could compare the difference in taste and texture. The ones in the sauce was very good but I think my own personal preference was the 2 without the sauce. Also I used sea scallops and they took almost 7 minutes per side. Thanks for the recipe."
"I dipped the scallops in melted butter, salt and pepper before wrapping in bacon and didn't use the garlic or broth....delicious !"
"Excellent! I halved the recipe because it's just 2 of us. Otherwise, I didn't change a thing."
"Best ever! I had fresh Nantucket Scallops, I live in Rhode Island. The scallops were extra large so I cut them in half and used I/2 slice of bacon and held them together with toothpicks. This is a certain keeper.....RI Sailor"
"These were EXCELLENT! Given that this was the first time I ever used the broiler function of my oven, I would recommend adding that the broiler temperature should be set to medium. We used high, and damaged the pan. Will DEFINITELY make again!"
"The best bacon wrapped scallops I have ever made. In the past I have done them with BBQ sauce but always thought the BBQ sauce was over powering the taste of the scallops. I much preferred this recipe and will make it again. Thx MizzNezz for another good recipe."
"This is the first time I've ever made bacon-wrapped scallops. My son is a huge seafood lover, and he requested I try to make these. They were very tasty! I cut the bacon slices in half, so I only used a half piece per scallop, but that was still plenty. My only complaint was that they took a whole lot longer than 3 minutes on each side to cook, so I kept checking them as I was afraid they would burn. The flavor, though, was excellent. and so easy to make! I'm sure we'll be doing these again."
"Delicious! This was the first time I made bacon-wrapped scallops, and this recipe was so easy to follow. I served these yummy morsels as the appetizer to a Christmas seafood feast. After pouring the broth/butter mixture over then, I dusted the scallops with a little Old Bay seasoning for a little kick--very tasty!"
"Holy smokes batman! These are AWESOME! I served these with garlic butter rice that had some fresh parmesan mixed in and a side of fresh veggies as a main course and WOW. Everything just complimented each other. We will be making these again soon!"
"These went so fast at the party. I only had one or two. Everyone loved them!"
"I made the scallops and bacon wraps (and didn't put in the broth) to have along with a few other appetizers for a get together with friends and these were really good! I made Linda's Thai Sweet Chili Sauce for Dipping to dip them in and it was a great combination! Thank you for sharing your recipe with us!"
"I made these for a graduation party and they were enjoyed by all. Everyone dug right in and they were one of the first things on the table to go. Excellent flavor and a great appetizer!"
