Black pepper that is freshly ground
1 teaspoon garlic, chopped

Parmesan Croutons:

1 T. fresh lemon juice
1 t. Dijon mustard
Freshly ground black pepper
10 slices day-old white bread, crusts removed
1 egg
1 cup vegetable oil
Hot pepper sauce, dash
1 c. freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
1 T. white truffle oil

Preheat an oven until it reaches 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line the cookie sheet using some parchment paper. Within a blender or food processor, combine the lemon juice and egg for ten seconds. While the processor is running, pour slowly in vegetable oil via the feeding tube. It will thicken. Add in the salt, hot pepper sauce as well as the mustard and pulse once or twice in order to combine well. Spoon it into a tiny bowl, then add the truffle oil, pepper, and cheese. Combine well. Cut every slice of bread into diagonal shapes of 2 triangles. Spread around one tablespoon of the mixture of mayonnaise onto every triangle. Place triangles onto a baking sheet, then bake them until they are lightly golden, around fifteen minutes. Finally, serve them warm. Vist the Web site for more amazing recipes.
