Recipe Time

Prep: 7 Minutes
Cook: 23 Minutes

Ingredients

12 ounces bay or sea scallops
1 1/2 teaspoons seafood seasoning, divided
2 teaspoons butter
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup shredded Swiss or white Cheddar cheese
1 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
Seafood seasoning (optional)

Preparation

1. Sprinkle scallops with 3/4 teaspoon seafood seasoning. Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; sauté scallops 3 minutes or until opaque. Remove scallops with a slotted spoon. Finely chop when cool enough to handle.

2. Beat cream cheese and sour cream at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Add cheese, remaining 3/4 teaspoon seafood seasoning, and spinach. Beat at low speed just until blended. Stir in scallops.

3. Spoon mixture into a lightly greased 4-cup baking dish. Sprinkle with seafood seasoning, if desired. Bake at 375° for 20 minutes or until bubbly.
