- 1 egg, beaten
- 1/4 cup tomato sauce
- 1 small onion, finely chopped
- 1/2 cup bread crumbs
- 1 Tablespoon paprika
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1 lb. lean ground beef
- 2 1/2 oz fetta cheese (cut into 16 cubes if you have that kind)
- 1 jar (12 oz.) orange marmalade
- 3 green onions chopped
- 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped (I actually used 1/2 because the pepper I had was huge for a jalapeno.)
In a large bowl, combine first 9 ingredients. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well.
Divide into 16 portions; flatten. Top each with a cheese cube (or divide teh feta evenly amoung the discs.) Form beef mixture around cheese into meatballs. Place on a greased rack on a cookie sheet. Bake uncovered at 400 for 20-25 minutes or until no longer pink. (mine were done in 20.)
In a small saucepan, heat the marmalade, orage juice, half of the green onions, and the jalapeno.
Place the meatballs in a serving dish; pour glaze over the top and gently stir to coat. Garnish with remaining green onions.
