I don't have any recommendations for amount, but I will say do it! A local brewery called the Hideout did a hazelnut pale ale a couple months ago. It was very delicious.

After doing a little searching on here, it looks like for a 5 gallon batch, most people use 1/2 to 3/4 lb of hazelnut added to the mash. The oils from the hazelnuts will kill head retention though, if that is important to you.
