Bacon-wrapped scallops are the perfect appetizer for a dinner party, or a perfect treat dinner to shake things up!  This Bacon-Wrapped Scallop recipe comes together in under 30 minutes, and is all done right in the oven.

Don’t skip pre-baking the bacon, that’s what allows the bacon to become cooked through without overcooking the scallops.  If your scallops are especially large (as the ones pictured, which are from ButcherBox), you may use a whole slice of bacon per scallop, overlapping partially.
