"This is the first time I tried this receipe and indeed it was awesome. The only variation I used was freshly ground sea salt/freshly ground pepper blend, and 1/4 tsp nutmeg to taste. In addition, I us..." See moreed flavored breads crumbs as opposed to the plain bread crumbs. I used about a pound of scallops instead of the 16 as recommended in the recipe The dish was prepared and cooked in a 9 x 13 pyrex dish sprayed with a non-stick cooking spray."
"These are better than awesome! Other reviewers noted not to use all of the topping the recipe calls for - I disagree. But instead of putting all of the topping on top of the scallops, I put a little..." See more dab on each scallop and scattered the rest of the topping around the scallops, allowing the topping to "soak up" the melted butter/garlic mix that I did not discard, but poured over and around scallops in the casserole dish - this came out crispy and delicious! And easy?? This is the first time I've ever cooked scallops (was always afraid to) and this recipe made me a whiz at it! Will be making this again!!"
