Old Amsterdam Cheese Nests

Old Amsterdam Cheese Nests


  • 12.5oz of Old Amsterdam
  • Baking paper
  • 1lb of turkey breast
  • 1 lettuce
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 orange sweet pepper
  • 9oz of cherry tomatoes
  • 5 tablespoons of yoghurt
  • 1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard
  • 1-2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar
  • Salt and pepper
  • A pinch of sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • ½ a clove of garlic


Preheat the oven to 480°F. Grate the Old Amsterdam and keep two tablespoons to the side. Sprinkle the rest of the cheese in 4 thin round slices on a baking tray covered in baking paper, and let it melt in the oven until the cheese sticks together. Let the cheese biscuits cool down for a couple of minutes, put each slice on the bottom of a small upturned bowl, press lightly so that it takes on the shape of the bowl and let it cool down. Cut the turkey breast into strips and fry until crisp. Wash the lettuce, peel the cucumber and make balls using a melon baller. Clean and wash the sweet pepper and cherry tomatoes. Cut the sweet pepper into small pieces, cut the cherry tomatoes in half and add to the salad. Mix the yoghurt, mustard and vinegar. Season this with salt, pepper and sugar. Stir in the oil. Peel and press the garlic and add it to the above. Put the lettuce in the Old Amsterdam cheese nest, cover with the strips of turkey breast and sprinkle with the dressing. Sprinkle the remaining bits of cheese over the salad. Serve one cheese nest per plate.
