Tiny and tender bay scallops take center stage in these miniature dishes. They're reminiscent of potpies, very creamy and packed with flavorful veggies in every bite. Vivian Manary - Nepean, Oregon

    LOVED THIS! I made the recipe as is with shrimp (scallops were not affordable) and followed the suggestion to use less bread crumbs. I used 1/2 cup and it was still too much. But my husband and I loved this to death. And it was so much fun using the ramikins. I've never had so much fun with a recipe that was so great tasting. Thank you so for this recipe. Make it. You won't be sorry

    I used half and half, Italian bread crumbs and cut way back on both the flour and bread crumbs. Sometimes I use half scallops and half shrimp. The flavor is developed when you saute the vegetables. I found this very flavorful and one of my favorite ways to serve scallops.

    I love scallops so i was interested to see how this recipe turned out. My family and i found it a little bland for our taste. I also think it needs a reduction in bread crumbs. i will not make this again.
