Have three bowls laid out: 1. for flour 2. for eggs. 3. for Panko
Dredge Manchego slices through the flour, shake off excess. Dredge newly floured slices through the beaten eggs, shake off excess. Dredge the slices in Panko breading, set aside.
When all slices (roughly 30 or so) are breaded, bread again – dredging through egg mixture and Panko only.
In a large dutch oven, heat Vegetable oil to 360F. Dip the tip of the Manchego into the oil, if it begins to sizzle, the oil is hot enough and ready to use.
Place Manchego slices into the oil, let fry until a golden brown, 3-4 minutes.
Remove with a slotted spoon onto a paper towel lined plate.
Cut up guava paste into smaller pieces, add to a small sauce pan with ½ c water and set to simmer for 20 minutes. Once all is soft, remove from heat and blend with a hand held mixer or an emulsion blender until a thick jam forms.
