Place in a blender or food processor and set aside.

Using a slotted spoon, transfer the garlic to the blender or food processor with the roasted red pepper. Add 125 ml chicken stock and process to form a smooth puree. Set aside

Using the slotted spoon, transfer to a plate. One at a time, brown the pork pieces, meatballs, and the bacon or sausage over high heat in the same oil. Set aside with the chicken.
6. meanwhile, in a sauce pan over high heat, bring the remaining 875 ml stock to a boil, then reduce the heat to low to maintain a bare simmer, when you are finished browning the meats, add the rice to the oil remaining in the frying pan over medium heat. Stir will, then add the reserved pepper puree and cook for a few min until well blended. Add the simmering stock, the chickpeas, and the meats, bring to a boil, reduce the heat to low, and cook uncovered, stirring often, until the flavors are blended and some of the liquid is absorbed, about 7 min . transfer to the oven and bake, uncovered, until most of the liquid is absorbed, about 10 min J( oil making ahead, stop at this point. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. Reheat in a 325’f oven until warmed through, then continue as directed. )
7. in a bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk until blended. Pour the egg mixture evenly over the rice. Raise the oven temperature to 500’f and continue to bake until the top is browned, 5-8 min ( if the top fails to brown after 8 min and the pan is flameproof, slip it under the broiler for a few min until browned. )
8. Remove from the oven and let stand for 10 min before serving, then serve directly from the pan.
