Mix and match Middle Eastern-inspired toppings for a baked potato bar that allows kids to explore new flavors and taste combinations. A little bit of sweet, a little bit of savory, and a whole lot of color, this DIY dinner party has something for everyone.
Note: Za’atar is a flavor-packed Middle Eastern dried herb, seed, and spice blend that can be purchased at many grocery stores, specialty markets, and online. To make your own, combine the following ingredients: 1 tablespoon sesame seeds, 1 tablespoon sumac, 1 tablespoon ground cumin, 2 teaspoons dried thyme, 2 teaspoons dried oregano, 1 teaspoon fine sea salt, and 1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper. It will keep in a tightly sealed container for up to 6 months.
