This recipe could easily serve 8 – but will be great the following day with leftovers.

2) Remove the onions from the dish and mix with the potatoes, apples and a little salt and pepper in a large bowl. Return to the casserole dish and transfer to the oven, covered.
3) Bake the gratin covered for 1 hour. After 1 hour remove the lid and drizzle the top of the gratin with the olive oil. Bake for a further 15 minutes until golden.
