"bread is buttered" "She knows where her bread is buttered" What is that supposed to mean?

She knows who is looking after her, who is providing for her. She will take care of the person who feeds her. It could be applied to many situations.

I've never heard it phrased that way. I've always heard it phrase "She know which side her bread is buttered on."
