Meatball Bread Pudding

8 ounces ground beef
3/4 cup chopped onion
1 clove garlic, crushed
1/4 cup red wine
1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes, drained
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon sea salt
3 eggs
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/3 cup half-and-half cream
8 slices day-old bread, cubed
1/2 cup low-sodium chicken stock
1/4 cup grated Romano cheese

Crumble ground beef into a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and garlic; cook and stir until evenly browned. Drain off excess fat. Stir in red wine, tomatoes, oregano, red pepper flakes, and sea salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, brown sugar, and half-and-half. Place the bread cubes in a 2 quart casserole dish or square baking pan. Pour in the egg mixture, and chicken stock, and stir in the ground beef mixture. The bread should be saturated. Sprinkle half of the Romano cheese over the top. Bake for 40 minutes in preheated oven until top is golden and center is set. Portion into individual bowls, and top each one with some of the remaining Romano cheese.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
