Prep Time: 40 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 60 minutes

Gremolata:
1 cup (250 mL) finely chopped fresh parsley
1/3 cup (75 mL) olive oil
2 tbsp (30 mL) finely grated lemon zest
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt

Veal Cutlet Sliders:
1 3/4 cups (425 mL) dried breadcrumbs
1/3 cup (75 mL) grated Parmesan cheese
1 lb (500 g) veal scaloppini
1/2 tsp (2 mL) each salt and freshly ground pepper
1/2 cup (125 mL) all-purpose flour
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup (60 mL) olive oil
1 cup (250 mL) baby arugula
12 slices tomato
12 slices Buffalo mozzarella
12 slider ciabatta buns, toasted

Steps:
Gremolata: Stir parsley with olive oil, lemon zest, garlic and salt; set aside.

Veal Cutlet Sliders: Toss the breadcrumbs with the Parmesan cheese; set aside. Season scaloppini all over with the salt and pepper. Coat each cutlet first in flour, then dip in the beaten eggs and then coat with breadcrumb mixture.

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet set over medium heat. Cook scaloppini, in batches, for 3 to 4 minutes per side or until golden brown, adding more oil as needed. Drain on a paper towel-lined tray. Cut scaloppini to fit buns.

Layer some arugula, veal, tomato, mozzarella and gremolata on each ciabata bun. Serve immediately.

Cook’s Note: For an extra cheesy finish, layer mozzarella on cut scaloppini pieces and broil for 30 seconds to 1 minute until melted and bubbly. Add some heat to your appetizer and serve these sliders with hot pepper rings.
