There were times when older (and younger, too) people had bad teeth or no teeth at all. When people couldn't afford to discard stale bread because they were happy to have bread at all. Need is the mother of invention - make fondue or raclette out of old bread and old cheese when you have nothing else to eat but have to see how you can manage that old stuff with bad teeth or no teeth at all. That's the swiss way. Germans seem to be more simple minded: Just dip your stale bread into hot coffee or tea.In my area of Germany there is something called "Knabbeln" which my dear FIL introduced to me. He used to get up at four in the morning, put the ingredients for white bread into his bread machine, start the machine and then go back to bed until the bread was ready. One day the yeast he used must have been too old, the bread came out as a brick stone. So he smashed the brick stone into smaller pieces, put them in the oven to make kind of rusk which he brought me, telling me that when he was young this was called Knabbeln. Toast old bread so that it doesn't get bad and then have it for a simple breakfast with hot coffee or tea or for a fast lunch with some soup. Now like cheese fondue or raclette, we developed our ultimate comfort food out of this old time need.Measurements and prep time are just fantasy - actually you can just take some stale rolls, a cup of your favourite coffee and start enjoying...
