A casse-croûte [kas-kroot], literally a crust-cracker, was originally a tool used to crush the crust of bread for elderly people without teeth. In 1898, the current meaning of casse-croûte - a simple meal that workers would have during their lunch break or travelers on their journey - appeared for the first time in the French dictionary. Generally speaking, a casse-croûte represents a light meal, or simply a sandwich. This very common French term carries a sense of simplicity and conviviality that people naturally associate with bread.
