Soft Ciabatta buns (Bread Machine)

by Vicky


This is LittleChefsDad and LittleChef2’s most favorite bun. There’s nothing better for a roast beef sandwich than Ciabatta bread.  When I could eat gluten (insert sad crying face), this was one of my favorite breads too.  Please try it, you will not be disappointed!

LittleChef Tip: Let kids roll the dough out and shape into buns or whatever creative shape they want! Just make sure their little hands are well floured beforehand.
