The origin of the Birschermuesli is Swiss-German; the word muesli means “mush” or cereal. This recipe is based on the most delicious muesli I ever had. The restaurant, Hotel Deidesheimer Hof, was in the Pfalz wine region of Germany. Makes 4 cups of mixture. Make sure to include the recipe that follows so that your gift recipients will know how to make this wonderful breakfast cereal.
