Cheddar Cheese

Cheddar and Cashew Crusted Cutlets


  • ½ cup (100g) salted roasted cashew nuts
  • 1 spring onion, roughly chopped
  • ½ cup (50g) crumbled Mersey Valley Vintage Club Cheddar Cheese
  • 12 lamb cutlets
  • olive oil, for pan frying
  • freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • sweet potato mash or salad, for serving


Blend cashew nuts and spring onion in a food processor until coarsely chopped, add cheese and blend until well combined.

Firmly press spoonfuls of the cheddar crumbing onto each side of the cutlets and season with pepper.

Heat a lightly oiled large non-stick frypan and pan fry cutlets for 3-4 minutes on the first side, pressing occasionally with a spatula, until a golden crust forms.

Carefully turn over and cook on second side a further 2 minutes or until golden. The crust is very delicate so take care handling the cutlets. Serve with sweet potato mash or salad.

Note: Also try this recipe with the flavoured varieties in the Mersey Valley range such as Sweet Chilli and Spring Onion (omit the spring onion in the recipe).
