Nobody really knows how this dish got its name. Literally, "fotzel" means a torn-off scrap of paper, in this instance bread is used. Swiss grandmothers used to take stale bread to make fotzel slices, which made it an ideal recipe for homemakers accustomed to never throwing bread away. This recipe was taken from a swiss web site and posted for use in ZWT - 7 World tour of Switzerland.
