A mouthful of flavors awaits when you serve this gluten-free appetizer. They can be assembled and refrigerated up to 24 hours before broiling. If you prefer, use hickory-smoked bacon in place of the turkey bacon.

TIP: If your figs are small, use a whole fig for each appetizer.

Yields 24 wraps


  • 12 fresh or dried large figs, halved, or 24 dates
  • 24 small wedges of Brie or dairy-free alternative, optional
  • 12 slices of turkey bacon, cut in half


1Heat oven to broil. Lightly spray a broiler pan with oil.

2Place a fig and wedge of cheese, if using, next to each other. Wrap bacon around them snugly and secure the bundle with a small skewer or toothpick. Place on prepared pan. Repeat with remaining ingredients.

3Place in oven and broil 3 minutes. Turn and broil an additional 1½ minutes or until bacon is crisp and cooked through.

4Remove from oven. Let cool slightly and serve.
