    Meanwhile, preheat a grill to high. In a bowl, whisk together eggs and thyme and season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Pour over mushroom mixture and cook, stirring to evenly disperse mushrooms and bring egg mixture into the centre. Cook until almost set (6-8 minutes), scatter with fontina and place under grill until cheese melts and frittata is completely set (2 minutes). Cut into wedges and serve with a baby green leaf salad.
