I made this for the first time this past Christmas Eve. I wanted a way to incorporate bacon with scallops without making the traditional bacon wrapped scallop. A new (delicious) recipe was born and I think will become part of the regular rotation.

  2. Cut bacon into chunks and cook until crispy. Lightly drain and toss in a bowl with brown sugar until fully coated.
  3. Heat olive oil in a pan. Cook scallops approximately 4 minutes on each side or until just cooked through.
