Miss Brown’s House Seasoning:


  1. For the croutons: Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Toss the bread cubes with the oil and House Seasoning in a medium bowl. Spread in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake until golden brown and toasted, about 10 minutes. Let cool.
  2. For the dressing: Meanwhile, whisk together the mayonnaise, mustard, anchovy paste, Worcestershire sauce, Parmesan, garlic, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Whisk in water, 1 teaspoon at a time, until the dressing is thin enough to drizzle.
  3. For the salad: Heat a cast-iron grill pan over medium-high heat. Brush the cut sides of the romaine halves with the oil and season with a pinch each of salt and pepper. Place the halves cut-side down on the pan and cook until slightly charred, about 2 minutes. Transfer each half cut-side up on a plate. Drizzle with the dressing and top with the croutons, Parmesan and lemon zest.
