Hamburger Parmigiana



1 egg, beaten
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/4 cup soft breadcrumbs
1 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese
1 lb. lean ground beef
vegetable cooking spray
1 jar/can spaghetti sauce
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded or 4 slices
1/2 lb spaghetti, cooked and drained

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a bowl combine eggs, salt and pepper; beat with a wire whisk until blended.  In another bowl combine breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese, stirring well.  Form ground beef into 4 patties.  Dip into egg mixture and then into bread crumb mix.  Saute in a large skillet coated with cooking spray until golden brown.  Remove from skillet and remove skillet from heat.  Pour spaghetti in to the skillet.  Top with patties.  Top each with cheese.  Pour spaghetti sauce over everything and bake 15-20 minutes or until bubbly.  Serves 4.

Martha:  This recipe was originally for veal but I don't eat veal so I decided to make hamburger patties and use them instead.  This turned out delicious.  I did serve it with extra Parmesan over the top.   You could also cut the size of the patties down and make 6 if you want.  Serve with a salad and you have a wonderful meal.
