Number of Servings: 4


    * Bread roll, white, 1.5 serving (yesterdays!)
    * Ground beef, extra lean, 14 oz
    * Egg, fresh, 2 medium
    * Yellow Mustard, 1 tsp
    * Onions, raw, 1 medium (2-1/2" dia)
    * Anchovies, 2
    * Butter, unsalted, 4 tbsp
    * Vegetable Broth, 4 cup
    * Wheat flour, white, all-purpose, 0.2 cup
    * Milk, 3.25%, 1 cup
    * Lea & Perrins, Worcestershire Sauce, 1 tsp
    * Capers, canned, 6 tbsp
    * Lemon Juice, 1 lemon yields
    * Pepper, black, 1 tsp
    * Salt, 1 tsp


Soak the dry bread rolls in cold water. While they soak, finely chop the onion and fry in 1 tbsp of the butter. In a mixing bowl, add to ground beef (with butter!). Chop anchovies as finely as possible, squeeze the excess water out of the soaked rolls, and add both to bowl too. Add the eggs and mix well, seasoning with salt, pepper and mustard.
Bring the broth to a boil, turn down the heat, roll about 24 golf ball sized meatballs and slide into broth. Simmer on medium heat for 15 minutes, the broth should not bubble, just simmer gently.
In a saucepan heat remaining butter, toast flour for a minute, then add some of the broth, ladle by ladle, about a cup, and a cup of milk, taking care to bring it back to a boil before adding more liquid. The sauce should get the consistency of heavy whipping cream.
Season with salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce and lemon juice to taste. Add capers and serve over meatballs.
This dish is best accompanied by potatoes or rice, serves 4 as a main course.
