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.
I do cottage cheese before bed, nice and slow proteins for over nite. I'm with the Gimp too
glucose and whey straight after, then slow absorbing foods like meat, cottage cheese, nuts etc.
