"It's OK to have your eggs in one basket as long as you control what happens to that basket." -Elon Musk
There are two schools of thought on cooking mushrooms. One is that the mushrooms should not touch when they are in the pan and that you should cook them in small batches. This is because if they are too crowded in the pan, they will steam, creating moisture. If there is enough space they won't steam and the exterior will caramelize, bringing out even more of the mushrooms' umami flavor.
I cook mushrooms both ways. Most of the time it is based on what I want from them, but more often it is how hard I might want to work. With a frittata you want it to be simple and ideally use only a single pan, so toss the mushrooms frequently while cooking them long enough that the steam evaporates.
