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!
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.
