I work all day and only have time to go to the gym at midnight. I work out for about an hour or a little more then i go home and have a small bite.

what would be the best thing to eat after a workout before going to bed?

Same thing you'd eat earlier in the day, IMO. The periods surrounding a workout are when your body is most anabolic, I wouldn't worry about the mythical carbs at night will make you fat thing.

Ideally take a post workout shake with you to have right after your workout consisting of some whey and carbs (dextrose or maltodextrin). Then when you get home have a slow digesting high protein meal. Cottage cheese would be perfect.

either have a post workout shake or just eat a good sensible meal with carbs and protein you should be fine.

glucose and whey straight after, then slow absorbing foods like meat, cottage cheese, nuts etc.
