  • Great recipe for the bread, but where can find the butter?

  • Try mixing plain butter or margarine with a couple of tablespoons of honey (to your taste) whip together with a mixer. Tastes great on this bread!

  • I am sorry but this bread in no way is like the outbacks in look or taste. This is the first recipe i have been disappointed with from you but I just thought I should let ya know.

  • Absolutely delishious. My husband loves to bake bread. I printed your recipe for him, he has made 2 batches - we were so pleased. Not only did we serve it as Outback does, but we made hoagie sandwiches with the small loaves as well. Next time we are going to make them into buns for other sandwiches we like to eat. Thanks!!!!!

  • In regards to the butter. Mix some brown sugar into the butter (they forgot to mix it in once when we ordered takeout). The honey butter is also good with hush puppies. Another good idea is to mix cinnamon and sugar with the butter.

  • Haven't tried the bread yet but for the butter try also adding powdered sugar, it works best in sweet spreads.
