Forced English, Dutch and American to return (4)
I believe the answer is:
Here is my best explanation:
'forced' is the definition.
'english dutch and american to return' is the subsidiary indication.
'english' becomes 'e' (abbreviation).
'dutch' becomes 'd' (common abbreviation).
'and' says to put letters next to each other.
'american' becomes 'am' (abbreviation in some contexts).
'to return' says the letters should be written backwards.
'edam' back-to-front is 'made'.
(Other definitions for made that I've seen before include "Produced", "Constructed", "Fabricated", "Manufactured", "One renovating (painting)", "Created" and "Built".)
