Bircher Müsli is one of those dishes I always go for when I see it at a breakfast buffet. But rarely do I make it for myself despite its simplicity. Because I would have to remember to start the process in the evening, in order to enjoy it the next morning. And that is not happening often, unfortunately. Usually, I wake up Sunday mornings, realizing I did forget something the night before.
For the rare occasion, I do remember, this is the way to go. Highly customizable, you can change the liquid to soak the oats in, the dried fruit, the kind of nuts, and even the type of fruit you grate into the dish (to some extend). I believe the original version features raisins and pears but you do you and find out what you like most. I haven’t met a bircher müsli that I didn’t like.
