Book Club: The Pioneer Woman Cooks by Ree Drummond

Welcome to the latest book club read: The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Recipes from an Accidental Country Girl by Ree Drummond "...a homespun collection of photography, rural stories, and scrumptious recipes that have defined my experience in the country. I share many of the delicious cowboy-tested recipes I've learned to make during my years as an accidental ranch wife..." From Ree Drummond on the book flap.

Breakfast Bowls (My "quick" adaption.* Pioneer Woman's original recipe is on pg. 56-57)
1 onion
1 t olive oil
1 t butter
1 can sliced potatoes (drained)
6-8 slices bacon (cooked and chopped)
6 eggs
1/4 C milk (organic)
1 C grated cheese

Preheat oven to 325.  Butter 6 oven safe ramekins and place on cookie sheet. Put butter and olive oil in frying pan. Chop onion and saute. Drain and chop potatoes and add to onions. Pan fry until they caramelize. Spoon potatoes into the ramekins. Cook bacon, chop then sprinkle over the potatoes. Sprinkle half of the cheese over each. Crack the eggs into a bowl and whisk with milk then pour evenly into the ramekins. Distribute the rest of the cheese evenly and bake for 20 minutes.

*I only had part of the ingredients from the original recipe, but it still turned out to be a really good and hearty breakfast. The melted cheese was gooey--and this was a great combo of ingredients! The Breakfast Bowls brought everybody together for Saturday breakfast yesterday. Your family might really like them too!


Update - March 2011: Did you know Ree has published two additional books since this post?
