Wow - big flavor in a small slider. It really is a blending of a fresh Margherita pizza crossed with a juicy rib eye. The combination of fresh tomato, basil, and mozzarella is perfection. Mayonnaise mixed with the Parmesan adds a nice creamy texture with a little bit of savoriness. This slider is hearty, juicy and good to the last bite! The Test Kitchen
