Orange Glazed Meatballs

1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup ketchup
1 small onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
3 teaspoon paprika
4 garlic cloves, chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 lb lean ground meat
2.5 oz feta cheese, cut into sixteen 1/2 inch cubes

1 jar (12 oz) orange marmalade
1/4 cup orange juice
3 green onions, chopped, divided

1. In a large bowl, combine the first nine ingredients.  Crumble beef over mixture and mix well.

2. 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.

3. In a small saucepan, heat the marmalade, orange juice, and half of the green onions.

4. Place meatballs in a serving dish; pour glaze over the top and gently stir to coat. Garnish with remaining green onions.
