Return to the oven and bake for 15 mins more until the edges are golden and crispy.

This is now my favourite way to eat baked potatoes. I used sun-dried tomatoes instead of peppers last time I made this as I had some to use up and they were a delicious alternative.

I've made it tonight and I'm actually surprised by the flavours. It was really nice! Never before used sumac spice... easy recipe to follow and great change from usual baked beans and cheddar.

I did this this evening, I used sweet potatoes as my husband is currently doing the Paleo diet. It was a big hit, kids liked it and it was my first use of the pot of sumac I bought spontaneously.
