The Quickie-Mart Quiche
Whipping up a pie crust may sound like an elaborate undertaking after you've spent the day hiking (or snoozing on the beach). But this recipe has a genius shortcut: make the crust out of Ritz or Saltine cracker or tortilla chip crumbs. The rest of the ingredients—grated cheddar, chopped ham, cottage cheese, onions—can be found in any supermarket. One more reason this tart makes an ideal vacation supper: leftover slices are excellent for breakfast or lunch and pack well, so you can eat them wherever you are.
