6 EGGS

1/8 tsp. Pepper
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (4 oz.)
3/4 cup finely chopped zucchini

CROSTINI:
36 thin baguette slices (1/4-inch)
3 Tbsp. olive oil

Step 4 BAKE in 350°F oven until just set, 10 to 13 minutes. COOL on wire rack 5 minutes; remove from cups.
Step 5 To serve, SPREAD about 1 tsp. cream cheese on each crostini; top with a mini frittata.
