Make the delicious Longhorn Steakhouse Bread from home with this delicious recipe! It’s hearty, soft, and oh-so delicious!
Bread is my nemesis.
Whenever I go to a restaurant and see that they have free bread, oh, it’s so hard not to fill up on it before I sit down to eat.
As you know, we are BIG fans of Longhorn Steakhouse around here. So I’m sure it comes as no surprise that we love their bread.
It is soft, has such great flavor, and when you pair it with their butter…there’s nothing better.

We’ve gotten takeout from them a few times recently, and it has bread and butter as optional…who would pick that?!
Longhorn is pretty pricey though, so I decided to try and make a copycat recipe of their bread on my own.
I was surprised to not really find anything that comparable online, so I went to work experimenting.
My first try ended up tasting a lot like Outback Steakhouse’s bread – which is delicious. But not the same (don’t worry, I’ll be sharing that soon).
But I finally tweaked the recipe to be PERFECT. Ah, I couldn’t get enough of this bread.
The top isn’t quite as soft as the Longhorn bread, but the taste and texture of it is pretty much right now.
It does take some time, but it’s so worth the effort. I can’t wait for you to try this!

What can I serve with Longhorn Steakhouse Bread?
This delicious bread is typically served as an appetizer at the restaurant.
I prefer having yummy bread with a nice steak dinner or a baked potato
But you can serve anything with it! Here are a few ideas to get you started.
While there are substitutions for yeast, it is not recommended for breads that you knead.
This recipe calls for part whole wheat flour and part all purpose flour. If you choose to use all whole wheat the consistency will be a bit more dense.
It is my recommendation to not substitute anything in this recipe to ensure it turns out perfectly.
Is the bread at Longhorn Steakhouse free? Yes. This bread comes to your table for free. However, making it at home means you are saving money because you are not paying for an entree to go with it.
What mixer do you use? I have both a Kitchen Aid Artisan mixer and a Bosch Universal Plus. I love them both, but the Bosch is my preferred for making bread – especially when I use whole wheat flour.
Can I freeze homemade bread? Yes. Wrap in saran wrap and foil and it should last in your freezer for 3-4 months.
Can I double this recipe? Yes.
