Recipe: Turkey Avocado Sliders

I have been wanting to use these cute little ciabatta rolls from Schar for a while now, but hadn’t really come up with a good use for them until last night.  Sure, they are great for garlic bread or even toasted bread dipped in herbed olive oil, but I wanted to be a little more creative.  When I went to make a turkey burger and found I was out of hamburger buns, it suddenly came to me to use the Schar ciabatta parbaked rolls.

The ciabatta rolls are not only free of gluten, but they are also free of milk, eggs and preservatives.  The ingredients are:

water, corn starch, corn flour, psyllium seed husk powder (vegetable fiber), yeast, rice flour, dextrose, soy protein isolate, palm oil, hydroxypropylmethylcellulose, salt, tartaric acid, citric acid.
CONTAINS SOY.

Each roll contains 100 calories, 1 gram fat, 2 grams protein, 4 grams fiber.  The rolls ended up being the perfect for sliders (small hamburgers).  I simply cut my turkey burger in half and placed each half on a roll.  This was one of the best meals I have had in a long time!
