Potatoes Onion and Cheese and Apple

My mother in law is known for many things, cooking is not one of them, but there are a few (ok 2) recipes that I have taken of hers.

Potatoes, onion and cheese was a family favorite when my wife was growing up.

I've made a few modifications and updated it a touch, in this version I have added sliced apples. It adds a ice sweetness and goes great with the cheddar.

Potatoes, Onion and Cheese (and Apple)
3 - 4 med to large potatoes, sliced
1 med to large onion, sliced
1 large firm apple, cored and sliced
3/4 cup grated cheese (more or less to taste), I used cheddar
salt and pepper

Pre heat oven to 400.
Rinse the potato under cold water to remove the starch. This helps to prevent this from becoming mashed potatoes.
Toss the potatoes, onions, oil and salt and pepper and place in an over proof dish.

Bake for about 30 minutes until the potatoes begin to soften. Add the apple slices.

After another 30 minutes or so, the potatoes and apples should be cooked, but not mushy, top with the cheese and cook another 5 minutes to melt the cheese. You can finish this under the broiler to crisp the top.
