Scallops Over Bourbon Candied Bacon

If you’re tired of the same old restaurant dishes, may I suggest the Scallops Over Bourbon Candied Bacon from the Charred Oak Tavern in Middleboro, Mass.?

This dish is every bit as good as it sounds. The seared scallops and crispy bacon with a one-of-a-kind bourbon taste along with scallions make for an appetizer that could stand alone as a good-value-for-the-money main meal. The Charred Oak Tavern has come up with a winner here!

You can read about the behind-the-scenes story of The Charred Oak Tavern right here. It’s quite a story! The Menard twins worked their tails off to own this cozy, highly popular restaurant and did so in a way that reflects their passion for whiskey and fresh seafood.
