This meal can be prepared in different ways, with different ingredients such as minced meat, smoked tuna, diced chicken, boiled eggs, cheese and butter.
The cheese and butter mashed potatoes is the basic recipe that we make with milk and spices as a light side dish or appetizer served with toasted bread.
Other varieties accept minced garlic, chopped onions, parsley, leeks, scallion, diced sweet pepper, diced tomatoes, preserved mushrooms, etc.
Adding all these vegetables with a protein base like boiled eggs, meat or chicken makes your dinner a complete, nutritious meal.

8 – Herbal cheese sandwiches.
The simplest forms contain mozzarella cheese, fresh thyme and a brush of olive oil.
My creative rolls may contain cheddar cheese, parmesan cheese, gouda cheese, ketchup and of course smoked turkey or roast beef cuts.
I layer the slices with cheese and ketchup inside the bread, heat them in the oven or toaster for a few minutes and serve them in a wide tray with the fresh herbs instead of rolling them inside. I once used caviar and crab meat for these warm rolls, the taste was fabulous.
