  2. Reduce oven setting to 350°F. COAT 36 mini muffin cups (1-3/4 x 3/4-inch) generously with cooking spray.

  3. BEAT eggs, milk, salt and pepper in medium bowl until blended. ADD cheese, zucchini, bell pepper and onion; mix well. SPOON about 1 Tbsp. egg mixture into each muffin cup.

  4. BAKE in 350°F oven until just set, 10 to 13 minutes. COOL on wire rack 5 minutes; remove from cups.

  5. To serve, SPREAD about 1 tsp. cream cheese on each crostini; top with a mini frittata.
