Ever since the success of the Red Lobster cheddar bay biscuit copycat recipe I’ve been wanting to try to make the delicious bread they bring out before your meal at Outback Steakhouse. Apparently the bread is called honeywheat bushman bread. There are several copycat recipes out there but this one by Chef Pablo sounded the least insane so I tried it.
It was good but doesn’t taste much like the Outback Steakhouse bread at all. It has a strong molasses flavor which I don’t remember from the original. It’s a little sweet for my taste so I probably won’t make it again. If I’m going to eat a sweet bread I prefer to eat a quick bread like banana or pumpkin. I may try a different copycat recipe though because I really do love that bread with the whipped butter and I don’t see myself going to Outback Steakhouse uhhh probably ever again.
We had this bread as part of what I’m calling our Trailer Park Thanksgiving. The bread was the only thing I made from scratch. The mashed potatoes are Publix brand from the box which I realize is pretty disgraceful but they actually weren’t bad. For our “turkey”, we tried the gardein savory stuffed turk’y with gravy we found in the frozen section at Whole Foods. It was good but not amazing. I give the gravy two thumbs up though.
