    Because people ate them with bread and butter?

    Bread and butter pickles got their name because bread and butter together are sweet. Bread and butter pickles are named such because during the Depression, they were as regular a part of a diet as bread and butter.

    I think it came from the Depression era and I'm not sure if the cucumbers were pickled, but they were used as sandwich filling on the cheap.
