"In Scandanavia, the word pancake is an almost generic term used for crepes, omelets & true pancakes, but mostly for crepes & omelets. The origin of this recipe is my “Classic Scandanavian Cooking” by Nika Hazelton cookbook & the intro suggests using a very tasty & full-flavored bacon for the best result. If I were in the US & making this dish, I’d be using a thick-sliced peppered bacon or good maple-flavored bacon."

"We really enjoyed this omelet. I made it as directed and served it with thick slices of heirloom tomatoes that I grow in the garden. What a fantastic breakfast! Thanks for sharing the recipe."
"I made half the recipe and just used 2 slices of turkey bacon. I added 1/4 teaspoon dill weed and skipped the salt for health reasons, and the taste was incredible. A great hearty breakfast with toast and marmalade. Thanks for posting twissis. Made for your win in Football Pool 2010 - Week 12."
"Had this for a light supper,very good."
"Very nice breakfast to savour over the weekend. I liked the way the flour helped the eggs firm up. Nice recipe and, of course, one of those that you can 'tweak' - the addition of a little grated cheese is a fine thing!"
"I made this for the ZWTII and added slices of Home Grown Tomatoes. Definetly a Keeper!"
"This is the first omelet I've had that did not include cheese, but I did not feel at all deprived as the bacon and chives were especially flavorsome and the omelet was great big and hearty. Because of its size, the omelet was somewhat awkward to work with but in the end it came out great. My daughter and I split and enjoyed our omelet for breakfast the first day of Zaar World Tour II ~ Thanks!"
"Very good, I halved the recipe and made a light supper for my husband, I drizzled a little maple Syrup over the bacon and he said it was the best omelette ever, making it for him again tonight :) Thank you, twissis, made for ZWT9, Family Picks, Pink Panthers"
"Absolutely delicious brunch/lunch!!! I made 1/6 of this recipe and followed it as written except, I added some colby/jack cheese instead of the suggested cream cheese. I served this with some fresh fruit and a blueberry muffin for one wonderful late breakfast/lunch. I really love the addition of chives, no need to pre-cook (to soften) as you do with onions. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for ZWT 9."
"mr picky liked this version best i think because of the cream cheese zwt9"
