A popular breakfast cereal based on uncooked rolled oats, fruit and nuts. It was developed around 1900 by Swiss physician Maximilian Bircher-Benner for patients in his hospital. It is available as a packaged dry form, or it can be made fresh.
In Switzerland, it is also eaten as a light evening dish; BirchermŁesli complet is muesli with butterbrot and milk coffee.
Originally known in Swiss German as BirchermŁesli or simply MŁesli, the word is an Alemannic diminutive of Mues which is related to the Old English word moose, meaning stew or pottage.
