Ciabatta Rolls

Chewy yet crisp, Ciabatta Rolls are the ideal bread to use for sandwiches or to eat on their own. Baking bread from a homemade bread recipe isn't hard at all - you don't even need a bread machine, as this particular ciabatta bread recipe bakes right in the oven! They can even be made ahead and frozen until your next big dinner, and although they take a few hours to make, the finished result is well worth it - homemade ciabatta rolls that no one can resist.
