The bread is great. Here's the recipe for the Honey Butter that is served with it. Saltgrass Steakhouse Honey Butter 1 Stick Butter (softened) 2 Tbsp. Condensed Milk 1/4 C + 1 Tbsp. Honey In small food processor or blender whip butter, milk, and honey. You must whip the ingredients until they lighten in color and turn a light cream color. Shape with melon ball. Cover and refrigerate until served. You may also omit the honey and serve with your favorite bread or rolls.
This Bread is WONDERFUL, We have a local steak house here in San Antonio that offers this bread, but this recipe makes it even better. My son likes his with butter, my wife and I love it with honey. Will be making it often.
