    Yummo-- just look at the ingredients!! I was short on time, so did not dip the scallops in the butter. Just wrapped the scallops and put the butter, sugar, lemon juice over the whole thing and put in the oven (broil setting) for about 5 minutes each side. Served as an appetizer at a dinner party.

    Had a few of this and that, including 6 nice, BIG, frozen scallops. Since we really LOVE the taste of the food--only enhanced, not disguised, by sauces and "stuff" -- this was really delicious !! Scallops, bacon, butter, and a little lemon juice were MEANT for each other. Thanks, 4Susan -- I will be preparing this frequently for meals, as well as appitizers. Janey
