Recipe – German Kartoffelgratin (potato casserole)

Thanksgiving in German Europe has a long tradition, but one that is different in many ways from that in North America. First of all, the Germani Erntedankfest (“harvest festival of thanks”) is primarily a rural and a religious celebration. When it is celebrated in larger cities, it is usually part of a church service and not anything like the big traditional family holiday in North America. Although it is celebrated locally and regionally, none of the German-speaking countries observes an official national Thanksgiving holiday on a particular day, as in Canada or the U.S.

I recently started making this new dish called Kartoffelgratin (Potato casserole), it is very simple and you can make it in so many variations, but I love my gratin mixed with ham and green onions.
