      Instructions
      Roasted Garlic
      1. Preheat oven to 350℉. Cut the top 1/4 off of two bulbs of garlic, place on foil, drizzle with olive oil. Fold foil over the bulbs and crimp to seal packet. Place on a baking sheet and bake for approximately 45 minutes.
      2. Remove from oven and allow to cool to room temperature before squeezing the garlic cloves out of the bulb shell. Set aside.
      Croutons
      1. Preheat oven to 350℉. Make a paste out of the roasted garlic cloves by smearing them with the back of a french knife. Finely chop parsley and combine with roasted garlic and olive oil. Drizzle oil mixture over the bread cubes and toss to combine. Spread out in a single layer on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for approximately 30 minutes, tossing at least once during baking time.
      Dressing
      1. In a blender, using short pulses, combine eggs, vinegar, roasted garlic, anchovy paste, worcestershire sauce, dijon, and mustard powder.
      2. With blender on medium speed add olive oil gradually in a thin stream to egg mixture. Once thick and emulsified add parmesan cheese and pulse twice to combine. Add cracked black pepper and course sea salt to taste.
      Crispy Prosciutto
      1. Slice sheets of prosciutto into 1/4 slices. Heat olive oil in a non stick skillet over medium heat. Add prosciutto and cook until crispy, tossing occasionally. Remove from heat and drain on paper towel to remove excess fat.
      2. Arrange lettuce on plate and drizzle with dressing. Top with croutons and crispy prosciutto. Add shaved parmesan if desired.
      Recipe Notes

      It is easier to cut each prosciutto slice into strips than it is to stack the slices, cut and separate each slice. The pasteurized eggs used where purchased in a carton.
