Interesting recipe, but not a widespread dish in Germany. Almost closer to a pancake than an omelette. And it would be "Haselnussomelett" in correct German.

I wonder if anyone can help me figure out what I did wrong. When I put this in a skillet, it is still very frothy from beating the egg whites. Even after 10 minutes on medium heat, it won't set. The bottom started to burn, so I flipped it into another pan, and it fell apart. Now, I have a mess that is the consistency of a thick porridge. It doesn't resemble an omelette at all.

Surprisingly good. I also have never had it before. I feel like it should have a sauce on it and it would be perfect.

I was worried that the milk was too much so I reduced it to 1/3 cup. Turned out fine.

Really, really good. I'd never heard of this before. So we were experimenting and didn't know what to expect. Serving size is too small. Next time, I'll double it for two hungry people.

The recipe is very good! It should, however, be spelt 'Hasselnussomelett' instead of 'Hazelnutomeletten'. Or 'Hazelnutomelett', but that would ot exactly be English, either. Hazelnut = Haßelnuß
