Bacon-Wrapped Scallops with Pear Sauce

 Bacon-Wrapped Scallops with Pear Sauce
I enjoy cooking for my parents, and my bacon-wrapped scallops recipe is one of their favorites. If you prefer, replace the pear preserves with preserves or jam of a different flavor.

Ingredients

  • 12 bacon strips
  • 3/4 cup pear preserves
