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.

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.

    This is good advice. Some restaurants offer gluten-free menus or mark items with “GF” on their regular menu, and I try to eat at such places. I still talk to the manager when I order to be sure.
