- Continually stir until onion becomes soft and translucent about 2 minutes, then add in mushrooms. and stir, you may need to add a bit of oil as the mushrooms will absorb a bit, season with salt and pepper.
- When the mushrooms are well coated with the oil add in the thyme and white wine and cook for about 10 minutes or until wine is all dissipated stirring occasionally. Finish with sprinkle of parsley and set aside to cool.
- Crack eggs in a medium bowl, spoon in milk ,add some salt and pepper and the grated Parmigiano cheese or Grana whichever you have and stir well until eggs, milk and cheese are well incorporated, add in cooled mushrooms leaving about 1/8 of the mushrooms for later use and stir again.
- In a 10 inch sauté pan drizzle in 2 tablespoon evo oil and drop in the butter, heat on low until butter melts and rotate pan to evenly distribute the oil and butter throughout the bottom of the pan.
- Pour egg and mushroom mixture into sauté pan and move pan to evenly distribute the mixture well. Move mushrooms so they are distributed well throughout the pan. Cover and let cook for 10 minutes on very low heat. With a spatula check it from time to time to see that bottom is not browning.
- When the bottom is firm and a nice creamy color, put the remaining mushroom nicely on top, place a 10 inch dish that fits tight inside the pan and holding the dish firmly turn the pan upside down releasing the frittata from the pan to the plate. Then slowly slide the frittata nicely back into the pan.
