My family loves to eat these Christmas eve. It’s a simple recipe but the key is not over-cooking the scallops. I’m still working out the timing but we like the bacon a little crispier so I recommend doing a thinner cut.


  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 20 minutes
  • Servings: 6


  • Bacon (1 strip for every 2 scallops)
  • 1 lb Scallops
  • Toothpicks


  1. Cook bacon until edges start to brown but is still under done. 10 minutes at 400 °F (205 °C) if done in oven.
  2. Cut bacon strips in half and wrap around scallops securing with a toothpick
  3. Place on a pan and broil for 8 minutes or until scallops turn opaque
