    PJ99's Note:

    This came from a Cuban book "A Taste of Old Cuba". I changed it a bit as I didn't have pigeons to eat but instead cornish game hen.

      Fry the bread slices in the dutch oven until browned on both sides and set them aside on paper towels. Using a mortar and pestle or food processor, mash the bread and the almonds into a paste and set aside.

      Saute the onions until translucent, about 3 minutes. Return the birds to the dutch oven. Add the garlic and cook 2 minutes more.Stir in the tomato sauce, broth and wine. Cover the pan, reduce the heat to low and simmer for about 2 hours, until the birds are tender.
