Scallops wrapped in bacon are very easy to make and can be inexpensive.
1 lb. of small bay scallops
1 package of 60 pieces of precooked bacon from Costco. (I suppose you could try this with other pre-cooked bacon, but it has to be soft enough to wrap around the small scallop without breaking!)
I must have made over 200 scallops wrapped with bacon for less than $20 -- and they were good! The bacon was actually done! Feel free to wrap them the night before and refrigerated them in a tupperware container.
Take one scallop and wrap bacon around it and secure with a toothpick. Feel free to tear the bacon and use one strip to wrap two or three scallops!
Cook about five minutes at 350 degrees. You can also cook them in the toaster oven for a quick appetizer!
