  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Place the baking pan in the lower half of the oven to catch drippings. Place the slices of bacon in a single layer on a baking rack, with space between each slice. Slide the baking rack into the center most slot in the oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes. When the bacon begins to turn brown, it's time to take it out. Carefully take the rack out of the oven and brush some maple syrup onto the bacon slices. Turn the slices over and brush the other side as well. Put the rack back into the oven and bake for an additional 3 to 5 minutes, until you have golden brown bacon. Transfer the bacon onto some paper towels which will soak up the excess grease and then, serve them.

  2. Baked Bacon and Scallops Ingredients For Scallop Seasoning 2 ½ tbsp paprika 1 tbsp dried thyme 2 tbsp salt 1 tbsp dried oregano 2 tbsp garlic powder 1 tbsp cayenne pepper 1 tbsp black pepper Before you begin, soak the skewers in warm water for about 30 minutes. Start by combining all the scallop seasoning ingredients. Then, preheat the oven to 350°F and place parchment paper on the baking sheet. Arrange the bacon strips on the parchment paper in a single layer and bake for 12 to 15 minutes. You need to take the bacon out at the point when it just begins to get golden around the edges but is still very supple. Once taken out of the oven, allow them to cool enough to handle them.

  3. Preheat a grill to medium-high. Dust the scallops on all sides with the scallop seasoning and salt. Carefully wrap each scallop in 1 slice of bacon and keep it in place by passing the bamboo skewer through the center. Repeat the procedure with the other scallops and bacon. Once the grill is hot, coat it lightly with olive oil, then place the skewer on it. Keep turning the skewers as the scallops cook, and they should be cooked in under 7 minutes. Place the cooked scallops in a platter and season with freshly ground black pepper. Add a dab of the butter to each scallop and serve.

  4. These instruction should leave you confident in the knowledge baking a bacon. The bacon scallop recipe is quite a treat and great to serve at cocktail parties.
