If you’re wondering what to serve with your potato soup, you’ve come to the right place.
In this article, I list 39 of the most popular side dishes for potato soup.
In a rush? Here’s the short answer.
The best side dishes to serve with potato soup are focaccia bread, broccoli cheese bites, seed crackers, and parmesan-crusted asparagus. You can also serve pan-seared scallops, crispy shredded brussels sprouts, or braided pesto bread. For main dishes, try salmon en croute and brats and sauerkraut.
Ready? Let’s jump right in.
Fresh herb focaccia bread
I love all kinds of bread, but I especially love focaccia.
Its soft, springy inside and golden, crispy crusts are simply irresistible – and it doesn’t need fancy flavoring, some simple herbs will do.
A small caveat: making focaccia from scratch takes a long time, but it’ll all be worth it once you take your first bite.
Why we love this recipe: it’s a delicious combination of simple ingredients.
Grilled beer brats and sauerkraut
These brats and sauerkraut feature a delectable combination of smoky, salty, and tart flavors.
They’re usually served in a bun, but they’re fabulous alongside a luscious potato soup with or without the bun!
Why we love this recipe: there’s little hands-on cooking required.
Ham and cheese sliders
You can’t go wrong pairing soup with sandwiches – and a ham and cheese slider should do the trick for potato soup.
They’re nothing extravagant but are guaranteed to be a hit.
After all, who can say no to ham and cheese stuffed inside fluffy Hawaiian rolls and glazed with a dijon butter sauce? Not me!
Why we love this recipe: they’re great when you’re cooking for a crowd.
Salmon en croute
Serving your potato soup as a starter? Follow it up with this gorgeous salmon en croute.
It’s similar to a beef wellington, but with salmon and a creamy mascarpone and kale mixture inside the puff pastry instead of beef.
After baking, you get a golden and flakey centerpiece for your spread.
Why we love this recipe: it’s a show-stopping dish that’s easy to make.
Broccoli cheddar quinoa bites
These quinoa bites are a hearty, but healthy addition to your potato soup.
They’re mini-sized but packed with vitamins and proteins, courtesy of the broccoli and quinoa.
And they use over two cups of shredded cheddar cheese, so you know they’ll be extra gooey.
Try dunking them in your soup’s creamy broth for the perfect bite!
Why we love this recipe: it’s a fun way to incorporate veggies into the meal.
Skip your usual store-bought crackers and serve these seed crackers alongside your potato soup instead.
They’re extra crispy, with a salty, savory flavor courtesy of the Everything Bagel seasoning.
And since they’re made with six different kinds of seeds, these treats are super healthy too.
Why we love this recipe: they’re naturally vegan!
Braided pesto bread
Crusty bread is the usual go-to accompaniment to any soup, but if you want to take things up a notch, this pesto bread is the way to go.
The zesty flavors swirled in this loaf will help brighten up your creamy potato soup.
Psst… don’t be intimidated by the braid – it’s easier to make than it looks!
Why we love this recipe: it’s an intricate-looking bread that even baking beginners can make.
Parmesan crusted asparagus
Coating your asparagus in a parmesan and panko breadcrumb mixture might become your new favorite way of eating asparagus.
You get an addictively crunchy crust that contrasts with crisp-tender asparagus inside.
They’re perfect to serve as low-carb “breadsticks” alongside creamy potato soup.
Why we love this recipe: it’s like healthy comfort food.
Beef up your potato soup course with these pan-seared scallops.
No need to do much with these – just a quick sear on both sides with butter, white wine, herbs, and lemon.
Then top your soup with a couple.
Psst… this works best with thicker soup so the scallops don’t sink.
Why we love this recipe: they instantly elevate any dish.
Crispy shredded brussels sprouts
Once you taste these crispy brussels sprouts, you’ll never say a bad word about them again.
Shredding the sprouts means they get way more crunchy – and all you need is a bit of parmesan cheese for flavor.
Pro-tip: use a food processor or mandoline to shred your sprouts faster.
Top your soup with a handful of these shredded sprouts for an alternative to croutons.
Why we love this recipe: it’s really budget-friendly.
This classic Italian dish is always a welcomed addition to a dinner spread.
It works as a starter, or you can serve it as a side to add a refreshing bite between spoonfuls of soup.
Psst… a mushroom bruschetta would be delicious too.
Why we love this recipe: it’s simple but packs a flavorful punch.
Puff pastry tart with pear and blue cheese
Make your potato soup a more substantial meal by pairing it with a puff pastry tart.
You can top the puff pastry with whatever you want, and this recipe has gone pretty unique with a pear and blue cheese mix.
I also really like mushroom flavor with potato soup (can you tell I like mushrooms?!).
Why we love this recipe: it’s an effortless but impressive-looking dish.
Grilled chicken Caesar salad
Your classic Caesar salad gets a major upgrade with this recipe.
It involves soaking your chicken in rosemary and lemon marinade, ensuring you get tender and juicy meat.
Then the romaine lettuce and croutons are grilled, giving you a prominent smoky flavor.
Why we love this recipe: it uses a lighter Greek yogurt dressing so it won’t be overly creamy.
