Bacon-Wrapped Scallops with Cream Sauce

Although the rich seafood tidbits look complicated, they're actually easy to assemble and cook. The dipping sauce, with its hints of mustard and maple syrup, complements the scallops nicely. It's a unique appetizer.

    Fantastic! The Dijon/maple combination have me pause, but I went ahead and followed the recipe exactly. What a surprising flavor! This was a hit. I'll definitely be doing it again!

    My family really enjoys the bacon wrapped scallops. For something different make a dipping sauce with mayo and worsterchester sauce. Yum.
