These spicy globe basil party meatballs are so easy to make and are so delicious—they will be the hit of the party!

The holidays are approaching and are my favorite time of year. I love every part of the festivities and love to attend parties. I also love to take a special homemade dish when I go (armed with a copy of this recipe; people always ask me for it).

My Spicy Globe Basil Party Meatballs can be made in advance, frozen, and when I need them all I have to do is make the sauce, add some meatballs and cook in my crockpot. It’s so easy to transport them to the party, too. Just take them in the crockpot, plug it in at the party and watch them disappear!

Easy to make meatballs, but packed full of delicious flavor!
