Remarks
You can use Parmesan instead of the Mimolette, or another hard-paste cheese, such as Cheddar or Comté.

Similarly, the almonds can be replaced with pine nuts or walnuts, but it is important to try and keep them crunchy, so do be sure to toast them.
Keeping
1 or 2 days in the fridge, covered with plastic film.

In France, "pain trempette" (dipping bread) is a loaf made to be broken easily into bite-sized morsels, perfect for serving with any dip. The dough is fairly soft and I have added shallots and fried bacon bits. The dip shown here is a hot box Mont d'Or, but there are plenty of other possibilities.
