It’s not always easy to plan what to serve with potato soup.
We put together a few ideas so you get to see some delicious sides to pair up with creamy or broth-based potato soups.
Do you want something simple and light? Or easy but filling?
Is there a favorite side that you eat with almost everything but you really want to step out of your comfort zone and try something new?
We have a list of potato soup sides for you to try.
1. Garlic Bread
Garlic bread as a side for potato soup is a small slice of heaven. I am fanatical about garlic bread.
If it is crispy, loaded with butter and garlic, I am gonna eat it first. That is just the way that I roll.
Grilled cheese is a fantastic comfort food and it is easy to make.
Since potato soup is also a comfort food it only makes sense that we would serve the two together.
This recipe provides a slight flavor twist by adding garlic to the bread.
So garlic, cheese, toasted bread and soup all together is really filling and inexpensive to serve.
4. Caesar Salad
Caesar salad is a refreshing salad that is simple to make yet jammed with flavor.
The simple flavor of this salad complements potato soup almost perfectly.
The croutons add a bit of crunch and then there is that crisp romaine adding to the texture.
This broccoli salad is a great side for potato soup. It has a bit of crunch and creamy texture.
It is served chilled.
Oh and it has bacon! I think that this is the perfect side to serve with potato soup.
It is also nice to work in a veggie with such a starchy soup like creamy potato soup.
This is one of my all-time favorite salads. It is light and the lemon dressing perks up any dish.
If you find yourself stuck on figuring out what to serve with potato soup this should be your go to.
You only need arugula, olive oil, lemon juice and salt and pepper.
7. BLT Sandwich
The soup and sandwich combo is such a classic that sometimes people completely overlook it.
The BLT sandwich is delicious with potato soup because it has bacon, lettuce and tomato.
These simple ingredients alongside the rich taste of potato soup will be quite refreshing and add nice texture to the meal.
These are an excellent dish to serve with potato soup, especially if you are looking for a simple lunch option.
These spinach wraps are fun to eat and easy to serve to a group.
The ingredients for these are pretty basic and you may already have it on hand.
Also, you can substitute ingredients easily based upon what you already have in the kitchen.
This is one of the best sides for potato soup.
We keep our roasted chicken recipes simple but they always turn out delicious.
Pulling a roasted chicken out of the oven smells so amazing.
Then knowing that the star of the show is a bowl of potato soup makes it even better.
This pork chop recipe only has a few ingredients but they really pack a punch of flavor.
You can prep these in just five minutes and then stick them in the oven to bake.
When they are done, serve these with the potato soup and you have an incredible meal.
11. Sautéed Peppers
Sautéed peppers are a great side dish for potato soup. They are beautiful served on the plate.
You could even toss these on top of the potato soup if you would like.
If you are having a dinner party and wanna wow your guests with the perfect side for potato soup this may be your best bet.
It is so pretty when served and it taste good. Honestly, you can stuff an avocado with just about anything and people cheer.
Stuffing the avocado with shrimp simply makes you a hero in the kitchen.
These cheesy fritters will be a surprising side for potato soup.
If you serve them hot, the cheese will still be a bit stringy.
These are fun to eat and easy to make. In my book that is a perfect combination.
These open-face cucumber sandwiches are so easy to make, light, and oddly delicious at the same time.
There’s something profound about the refreshing cucumber as a sidecar to the potato soup main dish.
Since we know that soup and sandwiches are a classic combo this is an obvious choice.
You only need fresh white bread, cucumbers, mayo and seasonings.
