Do-Ahead
To carry patties to a picnic or potluck for on-site grilling, pack them in a single layer in a plastic food container and keep chilled until grilling.
Substitution
Ciabatta is an Italian flatbread with a chewy texture. If you can't find ciabatta, use a loaf of French bread instead and cut into 12 diagonal slices.
