Scalloped Maine Scallops

Scalloped Maine Scallops

As a kid, it was always a great night when my mother made scalloped scallops.  This recipe came from a 1965 version of the Fanny Farmer Cookbook, but was shockingly removed from subsequent versions:

  • 1 lb scallops
  • 3 tbs butter
  • 3 tbs flour
  • 1 cup cream
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs or cracker crumbs tossed with 2 tbs butter

Cut scallops in half if they are larger than 20-count.  Melt butter in a saucepan and add the scallops.  You don't need to brown them - just start the cooking process.  Stir in flour and mix well.  Add cream and milk a little at a time, then cook until slightly thickened.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Put in a buttered casserole dish and top with crumbs.  Bake at 400% until the crumbs are browned.
