  2. Preheat hot skillet. Add olive oil, then place scallops (giving room between them on pan)

  4. Flip scallops with tongs and add butter to pan. Scallops should be golden on one side. Cook for 1 minute and baste scallops with butter.

Optional Croutons: before making soup, make Christmas stuffing per instructions on your favourite packaged stuffing, adding an egg. Prepare a shallow container with cling wrap covering the bottom and sides. Push the stuffing firmly into the shallow container and store in fridge until firm. Cut into bite sized cubes. Bake at 350 for 15 mins.
