How to make it
- Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Spread softened butter evenly in 8-cup shallow gratin or baking dish.

- Spread half of the potato mixture over bottom of gratin dish; top with apples. Sprinkle with 1 1/4 cups of the cheese; top with remaining potato mixture.
- Cover dish with foil; bake 30 minutes. Remove foil; sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup cheese. Bake 30 to 40 minutes or until potatoes and apples are tender, liquid has thickened and top is lightly browned. Remove from oven; let stand 10 minutes.
