For a New Year's Eve party, you need food that can be eaten one-handed. Having a hand free for your drink and for love pats is a necessity. You can get creative with your edibles still, even within those parameters. Fig jam is the best, and it pairs so well with creamy goat cheese. So it's an easy, elegant hors d’oeuvre, made fancier after it's topped with crispy fried sage leaves.
