   capers, lemon juice, and mustard. Simmer for 5 minutes. Remove a small
   amount of the sauce to blend with the egg yolk. Stir egg yolk back into the
   sauce.  Season with salt and pepper. To Serve: Place reserved meatballs
   into the gravy and reheat if necessary. Serve on a preheated platter.
