So, I felt creative and a little bit pretentious – I asked myself, “What would The Monopoly Man make for dinner?” OBVIOUSLY, the answer was bacon wrapped scallops.

Here is a recipe I had the pleasure of devouring 30 minutes after I started making it. I suggest using turkey bacon, but regular bacon works too.

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Wrap the scallops with bacon. 1 slice per scallop. Immediately secure the bacon to the scallop with a toothpick.
  3. Heat the pan on the stove to medium-high. Add a tablespoon of olive oil. Place the wrapped scallops onto the pan and let cook for 5 minutes.
  4. Using a pair of tongs, flip the scallops and let them cook another 5 minutes.
  5. Flip again and transfer to the oven. Cook for 15-20 minutes.
  6. Take out of the oven and serve!

Oh, and don’t forget your monacle.

Enjoy, dudes!
