Potato soup. Is there anything more warming and comforting on a cold winter’s day? Picture toasting your toes by the fire while supping on a hearty bowl of potato soup. Bliss!
Potatoes are creamy in a soup, giving that yummy texture without having to add in lots of cream. You can even sub out some potatoes for other vegetables like cauliflower, if you’re looking to reduce calories even further.
But what’s soup without a side? Just a drink.
You’ve got to have some bread, a salad, or a sandwich to dunk or eat alongside!
Here are 16 ideas for what to serve with potato soup.
Dunking a grilled cheese into tomato soup is a classic. But if you want to be more sophisticated, how about dipping a grilled spinach and artichoke sandwich into potato soup? The vegetables make it sound so much fancier and it’s also super delicious!
Yeah, but baking bread is like so much effort. I hear you. But this recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction only requires four ingredients and takes a few minutes to mix up. No elaborate kneading and rising schedules, and that’s a promise. Mix the flour, water, salt, and yeast briefly, then leave to rise. It tastes even better if you forget about it and leave it in the fridge for a day.
A second addition from Sally’s Baking Addiction because it’s just so easy to make and so delicious. This recipe requires more effort than the artisan bread, but honestly not much. The yeast is added to warm water in this recipe and left for five minutes to foam. This trick is getting the water to the exact right temperature. The key to the recipe is the water temperature, too hot water will scald the yeast and too cold water will not allow it to foam.
Olivia’s Cuisine has created one heck of a Ruben sandwich. It calls for rye bread which makes it more healthy and gives it a lot more substance than white bread, leaving you feeling fuller for longer. The sauerkraut is great for gut health, and the corned beef will ramp up the protein levels when paired with the potato soup.
Life Currents’ recipe for wild rice salad would pair nicely with a potato soup because it adds in all the grains the soup is missing, turning it into a fully nutritious meal. The toasted pecans and cashews are so delicious and add a delightful crunch to the salad. The dressing is very subtle, with the addition of raspberry vinaigrette giving a surprisingly sweet tang to the dish.
There is something about soup and salad that just cleanses the soul. It’s comforting, but it’s also really healthy! Two things don’t usually go together, but you know you’ll feel good after chowing down on soup and salad, a tasty and especially nutritious salad. Served from scratch, choose walnuts to add that lovely crunch. Pair them beautifully with the sweetness of the cranberries. Kale is one of the ‘meatier’ salad leaves to use, making it feel more substantial and giving you a hit of vitamins and iron.
Smitten Kitchen brings the next salad suggestion. The absolute best part of this recipe is the cheddar added to the salad; in a completely unexpected way. You are instructed to grate the cheddar, then bake it in the oven so it melts together into a bubbly cheese crisp. That’s right, like the edges of a grilled cheese sandwich, aka the best bit of the sandwich.
Life in the Lofthouse brings us a yummy chopped salad featuring all things autumnal. If you like all the bits in a salad rather than the green leaves, this is a good salad for you to eat with your potato soup. A chopped salad includes all the bits and less of the green leaves. Think bacon, pecans, apples, and feta for the flavors here.

If you can’t decide between potato soup and French onion soup, why not have potato soup with a French onion grilled cheese on the side? If only all problems were this simple to solve. XO and So takes the caramelized onions of the soup and add them to a thick grilled cheese sandwich. And oh boy, is it delicious!

Fresh tomatoes, arugula, and fresh mozzarella make up this sandwich. Oh, and a healthy dose of balsamic glaze! Uber is delicious and tastes even better dipped in creamy potato soup!
The Kitchen Magpie offers a beautiful recipe for a zucchini-based side dish. Healthier than fries, it gives you the same satisfying crunchy taste.

Macheesmo shares a classic Monte Cristo sandwich recipe, perfect on the side of soup. Potato soup works particularly well because they both have yummy creamy textures. The secret to making this sandwich taste absolute perfection is the sneaky third slice of bread!
Recipe Tin Eats offers a good recipe when you want to glam up store-bought bread a bit. It’s fine to serve a plain loaf on the side, it’ll still taste great.
