Ree Drummond’s One-Pan Cowboy Casserole is filled with bacon, cheese and a crispy potato garnish


In his Food Network series The pioneer woman, Ree Drummond spoke unabashedly about her love of casseroles. It doesn’t matter if they’re for breakfast, lunch, brunch, dinner, or a delicious dessert, she loves them all. Her admiration for these one-pot meals comes from having food ready to feed her large brood, which includes her husband Ladd, daughters Alex, Paige, and sons Todd, Bryce and Jamar. Many of its most popular dishes can be made ahead or are ready in under 30 minutes. Drummond’s One-Pan Cowboy Casserole ticks both of these boxes.
