Thanks Stefan that did the trick. I used
 
(eval-after-load "outline" ......

Is that the preferred method for running something after a mode has been
loaded?

Good idea, seems an overkill to have 3 separate menus for a minor-mode

I use a slightly modified version of a function you posted a few years
ago to toggle the visibility of an outline entry. I use Viper mode and
have mapped that function to "SPC" (not in insert mode obviously) makes
using outline-mode very nice.  If anyone is interested in the function
you can find it here
