- Heat oven to Fan 180C/200C/Gas 6. Peel your potatoes and then using a mandolin to save time, cut into matchsticks.
- Start to layer your dish. Begin with a potatoes, then a layer of sliced onion and then drape over half of the anchovies. My Mother always said, don’t be mean with them. Season with a little salt and pepper and then repeat the layers, ending with potatoes on top. Pour over the cream.
- Dot with knobs of butter and pour over the oil from the tin of anchovies. Cover with tin foil and bake in the over for 1 hour and 30 minutes.
- Remove the tin foil and bake uncovered for 30 minutes until golden.
