  • Transfer the onions to a large round bowl, add the potatoes, then add salt and pepper. Mix well.
  • Add the eggs, the sausages and ¼ of the cheese. Mix well.
  • Press the mixture into a large oiled baking tray, cover with the rest of the cheese and cook in the oven for 30 minutes.
  • Cut the apples into small cubes and mix in the lemon juice. Add a small amount of salt and mix well. Set aside.
  • Sprinkle the casserole with the apple cubes and serve immediately.
