I’ll be the first to admit that they don’t look like the prettiest thing, but boy were they tasty!

Preheat the oven on BROIL – HIGH.

I use about six scallops between the four of us and get the thick peppered bacon from the meat department. Cut the bacon pieces in half or have them wrap around twice, up to you depending how much bacon flavor you want. I suggest to start out just using half. Wrap the bacon around the outside of the scallop and put in a toothpick to hold it. Lightly sprinkle cayenne pepper on top.

Place the scallops under the broiler for two minutes, flip and cook for two more minutes. They should be golden brown on the outside and the bacon will be cooked.
