Toast Cheese, Creme Fraiche & Sweet Chili

Sandwiches and cheese are two of the most common food items in the Netherlands. There is a great variety of cheese available which makes each cheese sandwich a different story. For this sandwich I used “Gooische Pikante” Cheese. This is a cheese which has been aged for 12 months, and therefore has salt crystals in the cheese. However the cheese is still flexible and doesn’t fall apart, like a lot of other aged cheeses. Great cheese & great sandwich!
