Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets are one items I always have on hand. While this might sound odd to some, for me Puff Pastry is an easy way to make any ingredient into a wow-worthy appetizer or entree. They quickly defrost, are verstile and are light and flakey.

This golden flakiness is what makes Puff Pastry the perfect base for my Bacon Jam Scallops. I have to give credit where credit is due and this recipe was the development of hubby. Along with many, his personal credo is that “bacon makes everything better,” he suggested a play on the classic scallop appetizer bacon wrapped scallops.

Instead of wrapping each scallop in a hefty piece of bacon, a dish that quickly becomes pricy, he suggested using my award winning Bacon Jam. This man is a genius! We always have lots of friends and family coming through the house, and even more so now that our daughter was born.

I like having a few small bites on hand that I can easily whip up. Bacon Jam Scallops become one of those go-to recipes for entertaining.

Great modernized version of a classic…and without all the fuss! I can already imagine them disappearing as I bring them out of the kitchen 🙂
