Butter in itself is not a gluten issue, unless seasoned. It may be a dairy issue.

To add to what Momma Goose said, butter itself is gluten-free.

At Outback, the butter they use on baked potatoes (and on the bread platter, FWIW) is plain butter, no problem.

On the other hand, the butter they use on the vegetables is seasoned butter, and contains gluten. Ask for your veggies without butter, but the stuff on your tater is ok.

This is why we always BYOB (the little we eat at relatives and the one wedding we went to) !!


Husband has Celiac Disease and

Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -

The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis

Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,

most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as

being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."

Serious Depressive state ensued

Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003

Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.

Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle

Developed neuropathy in 2005

Now has lymphadema 2006It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003

I think I said in a post yesterday that my sweet potato came with butter on it and had to go back. The butter they put on the sweet potato is a honey butter or some kind of seasoned butter and I have been told by 2 different Outbacks that it is not gluten-free. So, they just brought me a new sweet potato with regular butter on the side.

Sorry if I added to the confusion.

The butter @ Outback is safe but just FYI the Sour Cream is DEFINITELY not! I have a wheat allergy so as soon as I eat it I can tell before it even gets digested & I had 2 bites of the baked potato with SC & got hives! There must be quite a bit of wheat in there b/c that reaction is usually reserved for eating a bread products or deep fried somethings.

It might have been cross-contamination, but they use Daisy brand sour cream at Outback, and it is gluten-free. Also, the honey butter is gluten-free. If you want your veggies with butter, just ask that it not be the seasoned butter.

Outback recently switched to a remote printing system that allows servers and kitchen staff to communicate MUCH better and makes gluten-free meals easier to prepare. For just about every item on the menu, there is a "gluten-free" button on the computer screen.

Still, cross-contamination is a major concern at any place, Outback being no exception

The sour cream at Outback is most definitely gluten-free. Probably CC, which is possible whenever you eat out.

The honey butter is also gluten-free. There are no warnings on the menu to avoid it.
