I love these 3-Meat Greek Balls.
They are great now, but during the depths of my healing, they were really great. While they are not Low-FODMAP, they do contain liver and liver did wonders for my B12 lessons.
I’m not going to say I love liver. I wish I did, but don’t. However….
One serving of chicken liver contains:
- 287% DV B12
- 267% DV Vitamin A
- 47% DV Vitamin C
- ….and so much more
And one serving of beef liver contains:
- 3,460% DV B12
- 860–1,100% DV Vitamin A
- 80% DV Iron
- ….and so much more
Sometimes you’ve just gotta do what you’ve just gotta do.

I won’t lie, though, getting in liver with these 3-Meat Greek Balls was easy. Not only is it a very simple recipe, but they taste great, too.
Because there are three different types of meat in these meatballs, leaving the liver as only 1/3 of it, you won’t even know it’s there.
When I eat liver, it must be masked.
In addition, the Spicely Organic Greek Seasoning makes a huge difference.
organic marjoram, organic garlic, organic onion, organic basil, organic oregano, organic rosemary, organic thyme, organic chili crushed
You can learn all about the seasoning HERE.
- ½ cup yellow onion
- 3 garlic bulbs, peeled
- 10 fresh basil leaves
- ½ pound organic chicken liver (drained, you don’t want the liquid in the mixture, otherwise it will be too “wet”)
- 1 pound organic beef, ground
- ½ pound kosher turkey, ground
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 tablespoons Spicely Organic Greek Seasoning
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Cover a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Place onions, garlic, and basil in your food processor and chop.
- Add liver and process for about 3-5 seconds (make sure to not over liquify).
- Transfer mixture to a large bowl and add in the rest of the ingredients, then mix together by hand.
- Form mixture into medium-to-large balls and place on the parchment paper.
- Bake for about 35 minutes (cut open to ensure they are fully cooked prior to eating).
This recipe will make 8 jumbo meatballs. You could also make smaller ones, if desired (would likely need to bake for less time then, too).
They are great eaten as-is, but you could also toss them over:
- Spaghetti Squash (I also have many more recipes for Spaghetti Squash on this website)
- Any of THESE brown rice noodles I get from Thrive Market
- Number 2 or 6 from THIS list
Okay, I’d love to know if you make these! Let me know in the comments below.
