Get some fresh figs, cut in half, put about a 1/4 teaspoon of goat cheese on cut side of figs, warm in 350F oven, drizzle with good balsamic vinegar.
Eat, and hide the rest from family!
-runs outside to see if my figs are ripe yet-

Cut pita into little wedges and spread with hummus. Sprinkle with a little goat cheese, and top with roasted red pepper or chopped ripe olives.

sounds good to me as well, too bad there are so few places we can get figs and they are only available to millionaires. As a kid, in so Ca we had a fig tree.

Buy one fresh baguette, cut in thin slices and toast gently. Spread each slice with goat cheese and top alternate pieces with a basil leaf or a spoonful of sundried tomato pesto.

Fried goat cheese -- freeze for a bit before cutting into rounds. Coat each round with seasoned breadcrumbs and pan-fry until golden. Serve next to or on a salad of balsamic-dressed greens.

Goat cheese - pesto torte ... layer goat cheese, pesto, and pine nuts and serve with crackers.

I bet you could also bake the above in a tart shell.

you know I think you can use the tart shells. My daughter made something similar (yes using goat cheese) as an appitizer a couple times last year. She used the shells, filled them with a little cheese, basil and 1/2 cherry or grape tomato in each (she didn't use the nuts) it was awesome.

When I was lived in MO, before I moved to FL, I would make these as a treat a couple of times a summer, totally understand the millionaire comment, one of my cousins turned me on to this recipe while I was visiting her in CA.
I still think its a miracle that I have my own fig trees, citrus, etc.

Maybe this is not an appetizer per se, but I like to have warm goat cheese over an argula salad with nectarine slices, almonds or walnuts, and balsamic dressing.

I haven't made this but my friend is a great cook and this is what she does with goat cheese.

Take out of fridge and let soften. She gets a three-pack of red, yellow, and green peppers, dices all of them and sautes in butter. When soft, she adds about 2 T of brown sugar and lets them almost carmelize.

On a crostini, she starts with bruschetta, tops that with goat cheese, and then adds the peppers.
