This Caesar salad does not mess around. It has everything in great amounts to make it an extremely flavorful and sustaining side dish (or meal in itself). Can add cooked chicken breast if desired to make it more of a meal-in-one.
Blend mayonnaise, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, egg, black pepper, and seasoned salt in a blender until smooth. Refrigerate for flavors to blend.
Place the bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on paper towels and crumble.
Mix romaine lettuce, bacon, onion, mushrooms, and croutons in a large bowl. Pour dressing over salad; toss to coat.
