With New Year’s Day approaching, I always like to have a plan in mind for some holiday eats.  We always eat seafood for New Year’s Eve, and for New Year’s Day brunch I like to change things up each year!

I am a huge fan of bread pudding, and I thought it would be fun and a little different to make a savory version!  I typically like more savory things to eat in the morning, and this bread pudding is a perfect make ahead option for New Year’s Day brunch!  You can make it ahead, and place it in the fridge overnight, and pop it in the oven when you are ready to serve brunch!  This comes in handy if you have had a late night out for New Year’s Eve!

I love to set my New Year’s Day brunch table with a few festive elements.  The kids think it is so fun to have some sparkling cider out of fancy glasses, and a few sparkly finishing touches.   The New Year is always a great time!  I love to reflect on the last year, and remember all of the good times, and I love the idea of starting fresh, and making new goals!

Sargent Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese

This savory bread pudding has the perfect amount of cheese with a bit of Sargento Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese mixed in, and then finished off with Sargento Artisans Blend Shredded Parmesan Cheese for the top!  I love the flavor of Italian sausage added, but you could easily substitute with bacon, or even ham!  So many great flavors in this dish, especially with the onions, and fresh herbs.

The Secret Life of Pets Max Puppy Pops & Family Movie Night Ideas

The Secret Life of Pets Movie Party Snack Tray

This post is in partnership with Universal Pictures Home Entertainment, all opinions are my own.

A favorite Family Tradition of ours is to have a Family Movie Night every Sunday night that we are available. It is a fun way for our family to be able to spend time together, laugh,  have a fun treat, and a good time!  We each get a turn to rotate what movie we all get to watch, and the kids just love having their own night to pick!  My cute five year old Thomas is so into dogs right now.  He might even spend more time on all fours, than upright these days!  He even has asked Santa Claus for a dog bone for Christmas! So funny!  He was so excited to chose The Secret Life of Pets (Now available on DVD and Blu-Ray!) for our Sunday night movie night choice!

The Secret Life of Pets is a cute comedy about the lives that pets lead when their humans leave for the day.  It’s by the same humans that brought us Despicable Me, which we were huge fans of!  The all-star voice cast includes Louis C.K., Eric Stonestreet, Kevin Hart, Jenny Slate, Ellie Kemper, Lake Bell, Dana Carvey, Hannibal Buress, Bobby Moynihan, Steve Coogan and Albert Brooks. The new DVD and Blu-Ray release also features nearly an hour of bonus content, plus three mini-movies including: Norman Television and Weenie PLUS Mower Minions!

I love to put together fun treats to coordinate with the movie of the night!  I made a movie party tray with some “Pup” corn, “Meat Sticks,” Secret Life of Pets fruit snacks, and some “Puppy Chow” with assorted snacks including graham cracker bones.  I also decided to create some fun “Puppy Pops” inspired by the main character Max the dog!
