- To make the croutons, pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Heat a small saute pan over medium heat and add the olive oil and mashed garlic. Just before the garlic begins to brown, remove the pan from heat. Let stand 10 minutes.
- Meanwhile line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Cut the French bread into 1-inch cubes and spread on the baking sheet in a single layer. Remove garlic from the pan and drizzle the garlic oil over the croutons. Toss cubes to evenly coat. Season with salt and pepper. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
- To make the dressing, start by placing the raw egg in boiling water for 30 seconds. Crack the egg into the bowl of a food processor, then add garlic, anchovies, and mustard. Blend until smooth. In a thin stream add olive oil and blend until dressing is thick and all the olive oil is gone (alternately use a bowl and a whisk). Stir in lemon juice and parmesan cheese. Season with salt and pepper.
- Place some of the dressing in a large bowl. Add some lettuce and croutons. Toss until well coated. Plate and repeat for the remaining lettuce.
- Using a peeler, make curls of parmesan cheese to garnish salads if desired.
