* In a medium bowl, blend all ingredients except oil. Shape into 1-inch meatballs. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet. Add 1/3 of the meatballs sauté, shaking pan frequently while browning to keep meatballs from sticking. Use remaining oil as needed. Remove with a slotted spoon when cooked repeat until all are browned. Keep meatballs in a warm oven. Sauce: * Heat butter in a saucepan add onion and mushrooms. Sauté over medium heat until golden. Remove from pan with a slotted spoon set aside. Over medium heat, add flour to butter remaining in pan stir and cook for 3 minutes. Add beef broth and bring to boil. Cook, stirring, over medium-high heat until thickened, about 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in onion-mushroom mixture, sour cream, and capers. Heat to just under boiling. Add salt and pepper to taste. Spaetzle:
*In a bowl, beat eggs, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/2 cup water, and flour together until well-blended. Melt butter or margarine in a deep skillet place in a warm oven to hold for cooked spaetzle. Add 1 tablespoon salt and oil to boiling water. Grease the inside of a colander with vegetable shortening. Place colander in the saucepan so it is 2 inches above boiling water. Spoon 1/4 cup batter into colander force through holes with a rubber scraper so the spaetzle will fall into the water below. When spaetzle floats to the surface, count to 10 and remove with a slotted spoon. Place cooked spaetzle into skillet in oven to keep warm. Continue cooking spaetzle until all batter is used.
*To assemble: Mound hot meatballs in the center of a large heated platter surround with spaetzle and garnish with cherry tomatoes and parsley sprigs. Serve sauce separately.
Note: Spaetzle will keep refrigerated, covered for 3 to 4 days.
