Hidden Superfood Italian Meatballs

Sometimes organ meats get a bad rap, but I consider them an essential part of a healthy diet! They provide a rich source of nutrients, including COQ10, iron, zinc, and vitamins A, D, E, and K.

Season these Superfood Italian Meatballs liberally with spices such as garlic and basil – they may become your new favorite way to eat meatballs!
