Ree Drummond’s Favorite Breakfast Is Indulgent and Delicious—Here’s How to Make It Healthier
The Pioneer Woman’s go-to morning meal just got a makeover.
Ree Drummond has built a Pioneer Woman empire in her hometown of Pawhuska, Oklahoma, and we are just dying to visit. From touring her family’s ranch to indulging in Drummond’s homemade cinnamon rolls from her bakery, we know the trek to Oklahoma would be well worth our while. An Instagram post from Drummond shows that visiting her restaurant might even win you a Ree and Ladd sighting, too.
Between Ladd’s cowboy duties and Ree’s TV career, there probably isn’t a ton of room for date night. However, Ree and Ladd can occasionally be found enjoying a breakfast date at Mercantile, the couple’s deli, bakery, and general store.
Can’t get enough of The Pioneer Woman?
Drummond shared a photo with one of her favorite breakfast items from the restaurant—Migas—with a jelly-topped biscuit on the side, of course. This mouthwatering dish is filled with farm-fresh eggs, pico de gallo, guacamole, sour cream, and breakfast potatoes, served in an adorable miniature cast-iron skillet.
If you don’t have the time to make a stop in Pawhuska, we found Drummond’s own Migas recipe from her blog that you can make at home. You simply scramble some cheesy eggs, saute some onions, peppers, tomatoes, and jalapenos, and top the glorious mixture with fried corn tortillas (her recipe omits the potatoes.) Ree also recommends topping the dish with black beans, and washing it all down with an iced coffee. You can find her full Migas recipe, along with step-by-step instructions, here.
We’re big fans of starting off our day with a hearty breakfast, and also love to sneak in an extra serving or two of veggies and filling fiber in the morning. But Ree’s breakfast is definitely an indulgent meal (all that oil and cheese should be saved for special occasions!) Our Southwestern Sweet Potato and Egg Hash is a bit of a lighter take on Drummond’s Migas, and you don’t have to miss out on all the spice and comfort.
