Turkey Bacon Wrapped Scallops – Super Bowl Snack Swap

February 6, 2017

Super Bowl Snack Swap 🏈

In the past my idea of Super Bowl snacks was nachos, wings and diet soda.

This year I did THINK about those foods, but since my husband is in a “I’m eating healthier” phase 😜 I was able to suggest a SNACK SWAP for these two tasty treats! WOWZA! He agreed!

MIDDAY DOUBTS 😱 😱

Honestly, though, after meal prepping in the morning – I was almost going to skip the new recipes — but, I had done the shopping and when I read the recipes, I realized it wouldn’t be super time intensive.

RESULTS!

🍴 The scallops with turkey bacon 🥓 were baked – so EASY and a bit spicy from a sprinkle of cayenne. 👅 The scallops looked like they were wearing little turkey bacon coats! 😂 Crispy on the outside and tender on the inside and using turkey bacon keeps them lean and low in calories.
