This weekend was the first of the year where a hot breakfast of oatmeal (porridge if you're British) just seemed too wintery and warming, Bircher muesli is a great alternative (yes, it is essentially cold oatmeal, but trust me, it tastes much better than it sounds)
I first discovered this dish a few years ago in a Jamie Oliver cookbook (I forget which one, it's somewhere in a box in my parents garage right now), from what I remember he gave it a fairly stupid name, pukka porridge or something? Still, despite the silly name, it's really good, and as long as you remember to put it together the night before, it takes minimum effort in the morning.
Instead of cooking the oats, you soak them overnight in milk with some other tasty ingredients and then, in the morning, add yogurt, apple and nuts.
Recipe note: You could add any dried fruit, nuts or seeds that you want. Also, some recipes call for apple juice instead of milk - this would make the whole thing sweeter, so you could leave the honey out. —cooklynveg

quick cook oatmeal (but not instant, it turns to mush ... unless you like mush)
