  1. Set up three bowls: 1 with flour, seasoned with salt and pepper; 1 with egg and 1 tablespoon of water and seasoned with salt and pepper and 1 with bread crumbs and ground almonds.
  2. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  3. Cut cheese into 2 equal pieces. Dredge the cheese first in the flour, then the egg wash and finally in the bread crumbs. Place the cheese in a small cazuela, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake in the oven for 5-7 minutes or until golden brown and the cheese is soft. Immediately drizzle with the Hot Garlic Vinaigrette and sprinkle with slivered almonds and parsley. Serve with warm crusty bread.
