"The ingredients in this dish are similar to the ones my mom uses to make meatballs--tomatoes, ground beef, cheese, and herbs bound together with eggs. A great way to use dried-out leftover bread."

  1. Crumble the 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 the red wine, tomatoes, oregano, red pepper flakes and sea salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low, and simmer for 20 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. 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.
  4. Bake for 40 minutes in the preheated oven, until the top is golden and the center is set. Portion into individual bowls, and top each one with some of the remaining Romano cheese.

I wasn't sure what to expect with this recipe. It is really good, easy, and flavorful. I did use more ground beef than it called for. I used a whole pound because that is what I had defrosted. I...

This was very tasty and incredibly easy! I could incorporate all 4 food groups and my kids had no idea - they just knew they wanted more!

This recipe is a really great idea and a bit of a retake on something my mom used to make which was savoury bread and butter pudding, but this is better because everything is nice and moist. I ...

This was really good, and a nice change from pasta. I would double the recipe (and we're only a family of four with one picky eater). I threw in some shredded mozzarella and used two eggs instea...

This recipe was OK - my husband said he would eat it again (so I'll give it 3 stars) but I don't think I'd make it again. It seemed too similar to an egg & bread breakfast casserole that I make...

I'm giving this three stars because I was the only one in my family who liked it. My husband said it was ok, but asked me not to make it again. I thought it was good, a little too much bread...

WOW! I have to admit that the recipe didn't sound that great to me, but I just had to try it. I am glad that I did! It is not only a quick and easy recipe, but very delicious as well! I was sur...

A very good recipe, even my husband, who isn't a big bread fan, liked it. I did double the amount of meat knowing who I was cooking for and would do so again in the future. The wine adds such a ...
