Recipe: Egg Bake

Made an egg bake last night to take camping, and it turned out both delicious and insanely low-calories, so I need to share. Substitute veggies, meat, cheese as you like. Here was my exact recipe:

1 chopped onion
2c chopped cauliflower
2 green bell peppers (on sale at Elden's!)
2 Trader Joe's Sweet Italian chicken sausages
5.75oz Daiya mozzarella style "cheese" shreds (what I had left in the bag!)
16oz (one carton) Crystal Farms 100% Liquid Egg Whites

Put in the 9x13 pan in that order, baked 1 hour at 350 degrees, and will cut into 12 nicely-sized pieces. Easy peasy, and here's the nutrition per piece: 92.75 calories, 7g carbs, 4g fat, 7g protein - holy shit, right?

Tips:
-Obviously pork or beef will raise calories over chicken sausage, but hey, a couple pieces of chopped bacon might flavor it up enough to be worth the trade off.
-Fake cheese is similar in calories to the real stuff; if you eliminate it (or cut down the amount) you might not even miss it, particularly if you add more spices.
-Use egg whites because you won't even miss the flavor of whole eggs.
-Add whatever spices you like.
-Use any vegetables you've got hanging out or about to go bad, but always include at least one onion or it tastes quite blah; the cauliflower also adds a surprising amount of flavor.
-If it still turns out blah, just top it with salsa or Tabasco, and remember to change it up next time!
