Yummy Mega MeatBalls Parmesan

2 lbs. ground beef
1 egg
1/4 cup ketchup
1 Tbsp. dehydrated onion
1 Tsp. minced garlic (from a jar)
1 Tbsp. parsley flakes
1 cup bread crumbs
Salt
Fresh ground pepper
1 cup Panko crumbs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup shredded Mozzarella Cheese
(or 6 slices of American)
1 jar/can of your favorite Spaghetti Sauce (I use Hunts)

Pre-heat oven to 350'
Combine ground beef, egg, ketchup, onion, garlic, parsley flakes, bread crumbs, salt & pepper.  Do not over-mix. 
Shape into 6 baseball-sized meatballs.  (Ladies: resist the urge to play with the balls...  over-stimulating them will cause them to get mushy).
In a shallow dish, combine Panko crumbs and Parmesan cheese. 
Roll each meatball in mixture to coat and place on large baking sheet.
Bake for 45 - 60 minutes (or until cooked through.) 
Top with cheese and return to oven until cheese is melted and bubbly. 
Spoon sauce over the top and serve with pasta.

* While I'm not knocking the deliciousness of Mozzarella cheese, I prefer to use a slice of American cheese on each meatball.  It's smoother to the taste and melts nicely.
