½ Cup diced, canned ham, or spam, or turkey, or corned beef, etc. (left over from breakfast is great).
2 Tablespoons chopped onion
¼ Cup diced boiled leftover potato
1 Cup course grated cheese
a small amount of mayo
If you have additional leftovers of cooked and crumbled bacon, and sliced mushrooms or olives, you can add to the mix. Then use enough mayo to hold mix together. Garlic butter the bread and spread mix ½ inch high on non-buttered side and then grill until golden and cheese is hot. You can back this with hot tomato soup and it’s a memorable lunch.
Are you cruising offshore and feeling generous? Heat the above mixture and place in a small wide mouth thermos to keep warm. Leave your favorite cracker next to it for the night watch to dip and snack. They will be singing praises to the galley goddess!
