Scallops Casino

I think I got this recipe from a friend many moons ago. This is another one I haven’t made in ages.

Funny, when Lorraine was looking at recipes last night to decide which one she wanted me to make, her first comment was, “a full stick of butter? We don’t need to use that much!”

Years ago I made it without thinking, but these days? I’d cut the butter in half. Next time I make this, I’ll experiment, and if I cut the butter in half I’ll update the recipe.

Scallops Casino

  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • 1 small onion, minced
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, minced
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 tsp white ground pepper
  • 1 to 1-1/2 lbs scallops
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 2 Tbsp parsley
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

Melt butter in a large saucepan. Saute onion for 5 minutes or until softened. Add bell pepper and saute 2 minutes longer. Add Worcestershire, white pepper, and scallops; saute 3 to 5 minutes or until scallops are just barely done. Pour into a 4 quart baking dish.

Mix breadcrumbs, parsley, and cheese. Sprinkle evenly over scallops. Broil for 3 to 5 minutes, or until the breading is browned.
