Scallops Maple Bacon Wraps.

Scallops Maple Bacon Wraps. The west coast scallops are the perfect size to wrap with. Prosciutto Ham, Bacon and Peaches, Kimchee and Kelp or the family fav, Maple Bacon.

They made little mini loafs and served it with the chilli and the soup du jour. Here is a simple recipe that once you hav…e tried, you will be back for more. Add dried chili,...
