1 egg beaten 1/4 cup ketchup 1 small onion, finely sliced 1/2 cup soft bread crumbs 1/4 cup minced fresh parsley 3 tsp. paprika 2 garlic cloves, minced 1/2 tsp salt 1/2 tsp pepper 1 lb. lean ground beef (90% lean) 2-1/2 oz. feta cheese, cut into sixteen 1/2 inch cubes Glaze: 1 jar (12 ounces) orange marmalade 1/4 cup orange juice 3 green onions 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped In a large bowl, combine the first nine ingredients. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Divide into 16 portions, flatten. Top each with a cheese cube, form beef mixture around cheese into meatballs. Place on a greased rack in a shallow baking pan. Bake uncovered at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until no longer pink. In a small saucepan, heat the marmalade, orange juice, half of the green onion and jalapeno. Place meatballs in a serving dish, pour glaze over the top and gently stir to coat. Garnish with remaining green onions. I cooked the meatballs at home and froze them. It worked well.
