Today's recipe can be used to make a lunch (or a quick dinner) that the kids will love, or some delicious appetizers. I find one recipe makes enough for 2 meals. I often make a double recipe and freeze the extras for future lunches or for when I need an easy-to-make (but not store bought) appetizer.
1 can of ham (Prem, Spam, or Klik) --> I prefer the Klik Light, as it's lower in fat
1/2 lb (about 250 g) of grated mozzarella cheese (grate it yourself or save time and use shredded cheese)
8 oz (about 175mL) can of tomato sauce*
1 Tbsp grated onion
1/2 tsp ground pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted (if you're calorie conscious, you can use less)
* I've used a can of pizza sauce and omitted the pepper, garlic and oregano and it turned out ok.
In a medium-sized bowl, mash the Klik well with a fork. Add all of the other ingredients and blend well. Chill in the fridge for a few hours.
For a lunch, spread on English muffins, hamburger buns, or French bread (we prefer English muffins). For an appetizer, spread on melba toast rounds or slices of baguette.
Place them on a baking sheet and broil in the oven until the top is brown and bubbly.

The mixture keep well in the fridge for about a week. It also freezes really well.
