I had already read about the Bircher Muesli but I had put it in my head in the porridge box, in short, something absolutely filthy (sorry), looking like plaster.
Yes, I know, some of you must think it’s good but I can’t.
And then, last week, while I was on the shores of Lake Como , there was this Bircher Muesli at breakfast. Since I’m a bit stubborn, I thought, let’s taste it, at worst it’s okay, I’ll leave it.
Well, you know what? I thought that was top top top. Nothing to do with plaster :p
When I was looking for information on Bircher Muesli, I found that the name came
from a doctor from Zurich,
- Maximilian Oskar Bircher-Brenner
- who had composed his own recipe at the very beginning of the 20th century
and the word
- meaning him, little mashed potato.
The basic ingredients of a birscher müesli
are oat flakes, milk, lemon juice and grated apple.
I offer you my version for 2 big appetites or 4 small ones:
Pour the oat flakes, milk, apple juice and lemon juice into a small bowl. Mix and leave overnight in the refrigerator.
The next day, add the grated apple and mix. Add fresh fruit and nuts (e.g. raspberries, blueberries, almonds, hazelnuts etc.) and enjoy.
