  1. Early in the day, mix garlic and oil together and set aside, covered, at room temperature. Garlic and oil should be allowed to marinate at least 8 hours and can be left to marinate up to 4 days.

  2. Preheat oven (or toaster oven) to 300 degrees. Remove crusts from bread and cut bread into ¾-inch cubes. Remove garlic from oil, toss bread cubes with 4 tablespoons of the oil, spread them on a baking sheet and allow them to toast about 20 minutes until they are golden brown, turning them so that they toast evenly. Remove from oven and allow to cool briefly.

  3. Remove heavy outer leaves and cores of the heads of lettuce. Tear remaining leaves in 2-inch pieces. Place them in a salad bowl and season to taste with salt and pepper. Toss with the remaining garlic-flavored oil.

  4. Mix Worcestershire sauce with lemon juice and, if using, the mayonnaise or egg substitute. Pour over the lettuce, and toss. Add croutons and, if using, the anchovies. Toss again. Sprinkle with grated cheese and serve.

  5. Note:

  6. Simply Eggs, which contains real egg yolks, is the best of the pasteurized egg products. Among the egg substitutes made without egg yolks, Better n’ Eggs and Healthy Choice are made without artificial flavoring or coloring.
