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.

- 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
