Give me a hoppy!

It's really good, so just think you've been duped and try it! It's easy to make because all you have to do is fill it with ingredients and bake it, and it can be done in 10 minutes when you think of it. You can season it as you like with Chuno sauce, black pepper, or shichimi. Personally, I recommend eating it as it is, because the ham and cheese have a nice salty flavor!
