Piquant Party Meatballs

Just say no to overly sweet meatballs; instead, serve these tangy, spicy, kickin’ piquant party meatballs that pack a perfect flavor punch!

piquant party meatballs

I got the recipe for these piquant party meatballs from a friend who brought these to party that we hosted for our senior girls and some of their friends. They have become my go-to party meatball version because they are piquant~spicy, tangy, zesty~all of those bold flavors that I love.  Many party meatballs are far too sweet; these are loaded with flavor, kick, and just enough heat.

Meatballs:  My favorite frozen meatballs are Trader Joe’s Italian beef. TJ’s miniature frozen meatballs are good also. I’ve heard that Costco has good ones as well. I’d love to hear from any of you who have any to recommend or to give a thumbs down to. Leave comments below:-)

Slow Cooker: These party meatballs thrive in a slow cooker. To thoroughly heat, a few hours on low does the trick. The warm setting then keeps these meatballs perfectly hot and ready to eat for hours. My favorite slow cooker to date is this stainless casserole crock. I love the rectangular shape and lower profile.

If you have a party on the horizon, give these a try! Just put out some party toothpicks and let everyone dig in. Let me hear back if you try these or have your own fave recipe to share. As always, thanks so much for stopping by. Be blessed, and stay savvy!
