The Pioneer Woman Ree Drummond is an expert when it comes to potlucks. Drummond has hosted her share of large gatherings over the years and knows how to please guests who come with big appetites. With Summer finally upon us, here is a look at Drummond’s top 10 potluck recipes that are sure to be a hit with friends and family.
Drummond launches revamped website
Before we get into Drummond’s amazing potluck recipes, the Pioneer Woman star just announced that she has officially switched up the look of her popular website, ThePioneerWoman.com. Taking to Instagram, Drummond announced the news and could barely contain her own excitement.
“If you’ve been here before, you may notice that things look a little different,” Drummond shared. “This is a change I am so excited about.”
The change comes almost 15 years after Drummond launched the original Pioneer Woman website back in 2006. In her video message, Drummond admitted that she started the site “on a whim” and never imagined that it would grow to become so popular.
The redesign includes photos of Drummond and her family at their ranch, plus some super cute images of her seven dogs. Drummond also released a slew of new recipes to promote the new look, including some very tasty looking desserts (like a sheet cake and blackberry cobbler).
Drummond, of course, has been spending the last few months hunkering down with her family at her ranch and releasing new episodes of her show. While fans cannot wait to explore Drummond’s revamped website, here are her top 10 potluck recipes everyone needs this summer.
‘The Pioneer Woman’s’ Top 10 potluck recipes
10. Grasshopper Pie
Drummond’s grasshopper pie is one of her own favorite recipes. The dish features a whipped topping and cream cheese that blends perfectly with the mint-green filling. This tasty dessert is sure to go fast so you might make a few for the family to enjoy.
9. Baked Beans
Baked beans are a staple for most potlucks, mainly because they go great with just about any main course. Drummond’s take on this classic features seven different types of beans. This mixture creates a great balance between taste, color, and texture, and is a far cry from her usual pork and beans recipes.
8. Twice-Baked Potato Casserole
You cannot do much to improve on a twice-baked potato, unless you make it into this indulgent casserole. The main ingredients in this dish are cheddar cheese and bacon, making it a very simple dish that is perfect for a comfort-food themed potluck.
A potluck would not be complete without a good coleslaw. The main difference in this dish is The Pioneer Woman star’s use of cilantro. You can also try adding a little blue cheese to the recipe if you are feeling particularly adventurous.
6. Strawberry Oatmeal Bars
Speaking of potluck favorites, oatmeal bars are typically a big hit with large gatherings. This recipe switches it up by filling each bar with strawberry preserves and adding a hint of coconut. Drummond, however, usually leaves the coconut out.
5. Lemon Bars
The dessert table at a potluck would not be complete unless there are lemon bars. Drummond’s lemon bars are very easy to make and feature a curd-like filling with a shortbread crust.
4. Cordon Bleu Casserole
The Pioneer Woman is very good at turning things into amazing casseroles, and her cordon bleu casserole is no exception. The ham and chicken are combined in a creamy mixture that features bread crumbs as a topping.
3. Layered Salad
Most potlucks have at least one version of a salad and Drummond puts her own unique spin on this classic side. In her layered salad, Drummond incorporates hard-boiled eggs, bacon, and peas to create a delicious potluck dish.
2. Caramel Brownies
Drummond’s caramel brownies are among her most popular recipes online. These tasty treats are filled with caramel which plays perfectly off the chocolate. They are also super easy to make and are perfect for large groups.
1. Chicken Tortilla Bake
If you are looking to add a little spice to the potluck, look no further than Drummond’s spicy casserole. This dish is based on a tortilla casserole and features a healthy layer of cheese for the topping. You can spice it up even more by adding hot peppers or salsa.
