Key Lime Pie from Outback Steakhouse!

Outback Steakhouse has a Key Lime Pie. The normal crust is not gluten-free but Barb C. talked to a manager and provided them with a Gluten-Free Pecan Crust recipe. If you call at least 2 days in advance and talk to a manager, they are willing to make a pie with a gluten free crust so that you can order a slice of pie for desert.

I tried this and it is very good! Just remember to ask for a manager (Shawn, John, or Justin are the names I think). Also stress that it is the gluten free crust and make sure you talk with the manager when you go in for your meal/desert. A slice of pie is around $4.50 but it is a large slice.

I actually ordered whole pies. They charged me $30 plus tax per pie (and gave it to me in pieces), but it was worth it!

This is the Outback Steakhouse at 21st and Rock. The phone # is (316)634-6500.

Thanks Barb for thinking to ask about providing a GF Crust recipe!

Food for Thought Gluten Free day

Got this email from Food for Thought...Thought I would pass it along.


I though I would pass on this event to your group:

Food for Thought will be hosting its monthly gluten free day on Saturday, July 28th from 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. We have found a wonderful new supplier of gluten-free products and will be sampling many of these great new products and lines. New items include: ready to eat frozen products, the top gluten-free line from Europe (Schar), baking mixes, ready to eat cake & pies and much more. This event is a fabulous chance for individuals to sample gluten free products and hopefully find new favorites.

Hope you can make it and see how good gluten free can be!
