Amazing!! Ok, so I do love both scallops and bacon, but still, these are amazing! The horseradish mixed into the maple syrup cuts down the sweetness a bit. You don't really taste it, it's subtle. I think garlic might do the same, but I haven't tried that. My scallops were pretty big so half a bacon slice wasn't enough for many of them, so keep that in mind if you have larger scallops (stock up on bacon). I also slightly cooked the bacon first. Scallops cook quickly and I didn't want to take the chance of them overcooking. I cooked the bacon for maybe 2 minutes (one minute per side) in a pan then drained them on paper toweling. These work well as an appetizer or entree.
