Olive oil for cooking

Combine the oil and bread cubes in a large pan and toss until coated. Season and toast on a low heat for about 10 minutes until croutons are golden. Set aside.
Add a drizzle of oil to pan and fry rashers. Remove from pan and slice thinly.
Whisk the yolks slowly adding in the olive oil. Add the garlic, lemon juice and mustard and combine.
Arrange the cos leaves in pairs on a plate to create 10 lettuce boats. Fill each with a sprinkling of croutons, bacon and egg. Lay half an anchovy fillet on top of each. Sprinkle with cheese. Drizzle with aioli. Serve immediately.
