The Costco Ciabatta Rolls are absolutely delicious and make some of the best sandwiches I have ever had.
These artisan rolls come in a 12 count and are located in the bakery section, Item Number 1221092. The 12 count package currently costs $5.99.

Straight out of the bag, these rolls are soft with slightly chewy crust. The ciabatta rolls are partially split in the middle and open up to reveal a beautiful airy middle that is full of holes and pockets.
The flavor is complex, bready, just a little tangy and slightly malty. The rolls have a pleasant, mild taste that works with a variety of toppings or you can be enjoy them on their own.
The rolls are perfectly fine by themselves but are beefy enough to stand up to some bold flavors.
How to Use the Rolls
Once you split the rolls they toast up to become another level of amazing.
The warm and crunchy crevices are perfect for soaking up spreads like the La Terra Fina Artichoke and Jalapeno or La Terra Fina Spinach and Artichoke dips that are Costco classics in their own rights.
You can use these rolls in hundreds of ways.
- Slather with a spread (peanut butter is an excellent choice)
- Dip into soups
- Receptacle for Sausage Gravy
- Cube, season and bake to make Croutons
- Make Sandwiches
These rolls, which are 4 inches square and 1.5 inches thick, are the perfect size for making sandwiches. I think these rolls are just as good, or maybe even better, for making sandwiches as Costco croissants.
For this sandwich I toasted the bun then loaded it up with Kirkland sliced roast beef and La Terra Fina Artichoke and Jalapeno spread. I think I dreamt about this sandwich last night. What can I say, there is a reason that I am a few pounds overweight.
Another amazing combination is to toast the bun, spread on a layer of pimento cheese and then add a few slices of ham and a fried egg.
Calories in the Kirkland Rolls
One of these rolls is a single serving and has the following nutritional Information:
- Calories: 270
- Fat: 3g (3% DV)
- Cholesterol: 0mg (0% DV)
- Sodium: 670mg (28% DV)
- Carbohydrates: 52g (17% DV)
- Protein: 9g
If you are watching your calories then 270 per roll might seem a little high. That being said, these rolls are worth the calories which is something that can’t be said for a lot of the foods we eat. I’ve got no problem taking on the extra calories that come along with eating amazing foods.
Ingredients in the Rolls
The ingredient list for the bread is plain and simple:
- Enriched Wheat Flour
- Malted Barley Flour
There are no preservatives in the bread.
This is an authentic style ingredient list so there is no dairy, eggs or fats in the rolls.
Storage and Handling Tips
There are 12 ciabatta rolls per package and you need to be mindful of storage. Because there are no preservatives in the bread the rolls can start to get moldy after 3-4 days.
Your choices are:
- Eat all 12 rolls in 3 days.
- Store the rolls in the freezer and take them out when you need them.
When I get these rolls home I leave them on the counter for a day or two while I enjoy having amazing sandwiches and then move the remaining rolls to the freezer.
Whenever I want to use a roll I remove it from the freezer and heat it in the microwave for one minute to thaw. After the bread thaws I slice it in half and put it in the toaster.
I have kept a bag of these rolls for up to two months in my freezer with no noticeable loss in quality.
