   mixing bowl with the ground beef.  Add the bacon, anchovy fillets, onion,
   egg, salt and pepper.  Mix thoroughly.  Prepare broth by boiling the
   water, seasoned with salt, bay leaf, onion, and peppercorns.  Shape the
   meat mixture into balls about 2 inches in diameter.  Add to the boiling
   broth and simmer over low heat for 20 minutes.  Remove meatballs with a
   slotted spoon, set aside, and keep warm.
   Gravy:
   To prepare gravy, heat butter in a frypan and stir in flour.  Cook for 3
   minutes, stirring constantly.  Slowly blend in 2 cups of reserved broth.
   Add the drained 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.
