GETTING READY
1. Trim core from romaine. Separate head into leaves, discarding any that are wilted or discolored.
2. Place in wire salad basket; rinse under cold running water; then shake well to remove excess moisture.
3. Wrap in plastic film, and store in vegetable crisper in refrigerator until crisp and cold for some hours or overnight.
4. Half the garlic clove. Set one half aside and crush remaining half, and combine with salad oil in a jar with a tight-fitting lid. Refrigerate oil mixture at least 1 hour.

MAKING
5. In a medium skillet, heat 2 tablespoons oil-garlic mixture, add bread cubes and sauté until brown all over. Set aside.
6. To remaining oil-garlic mixture in jar, add salt, mustard, pepper, Worcestershire, and anchovies. Shake vigorously and refrigerate until needed.
7. In a small saucepan, bring 2-inch depth of water to boiling. Remove from heat and carefully lower egg into water and allow to stand 1 minute, then lift out. Drain, and set aside to cool.

FINALISING
