Rich and hearty, potato soup is good eating at its finest. If you are looking to serve up a pot of potato soup you might be wondering, what to serve as a side dish.
Potato soup is the premier choice when looking to cook up something comforting and packed with flavor.
These 17 side dishes are sure to add taste and nutrients to your potato soup night. Pressed for time? Don’t worry, these side dishes are easy to make.
17 Side Dishes to Serve With Potato Soup
1. Corn Bread
Cornbread is a definite go-to for a side dish to pair with potato soup. Moist and rich with texture and flavor, cornbread is a must-have side.
Cornbread is not difficult to make but can take some effort. To make my cornbread hassle-free, I use box cornbread instead of scratch.
2. Greek Salad
If you want to add a salad to your potato soup, but want to skip the lettuce, try a Greek Salad. The crunchy cucumbers add a refreshing flavor to your meal.
I like to use larger cuts of vegetables for my salad to make it more authentic. Also, to make it a true Greek Salad, I do not grate my feta cheese.
3. Bread Sticks
Light and buttery, breadsticks make an appetizing choice for potato soup. The rich creamy sauce from the soup is easily sopped up by the rich bread.
To add a twist to your breadsticks top them with some cheddar or Colby cheese. This adds more flavor and makes your sticks a cheesy delight.
Thick and juicy roast makes the ultimate partner for potato soup if you are looking for a meal that is comforting and popping with flavor.
I like to sauté a little onion; garlic and green pepper, and then darken my roast on both sides for twenty minutes before popping it in the oven.
5. Fried Fish
If you want to add some crunchiness to your creamy potato soup, serve up a batch of fried fish. The crispy outer layer is a perfect contrast to the soft potatoes.
I like to slice up a lemon and place it on the fried fish after it has been cooked. I only leave the lemon on for a few minutes but it accentuates the flavor.
Rice makes a sound choice as a side dish because of its firmness. The grainy texture mixes well with the soup.
White rice tastes delicious with potato soup, but if you don’t mind the more wheat-like the taste, go with a much healthier brown rice.
7. Turkey Sandwiches
Turkey sandwiches are a great go-to if you are looking to add something dry, and tasty, to the mushy potato soup.
Turkey sandwiches do not have to be boring. Pile on some tomatoes, lettuce, and your favorite dressing for a yummy bite to eat.
8. Barbeque Chicken
Looking for something sweet and tangy to go along with your potato soup, then barbeque chicken is the answer.
Homemade barbeque sauces are the best, but if you are pressed for time, go with the store-bought sauce. Remember to sweeten it up with a little brown sugar.
Moderately sweet and low in fat, corn makes a nutritious choice to go along with your potato soup if you are looking to eat healthily.
I like to eat my corn on the cob. Frozen corn on the cob is the best because I do not have to shuck it first. Also, if boiling my cob, there is no need to defrost.
10. Tomato and Cucumber Salad
Tomato and cucumber salad are the way to go if you are looking for a zesty side that is easy to make and is also good for you.
Traditional cucumber salad is amazing, but I like to take my veggies to the next level by adding a little sour cream to my cucumber salad.
When I want a lot of meat I like to go with a thick, juicy cheeseburger. The hearty ground beef topped with a slice of cheese is the sensical choice.
For a taste like no other, I mix a little onion and green pepper in my ground beef and then I shape the meat into a patty and cook.
12. Ham and Cheese Crescents
Ham and cheese crescents are quick and easy to make, that is why they make an ideal match for the thick and creamy potato soup.
Store-bought crescent rolls are the best way to go when cooking up this side. All you need to do is place the ham and cheese inside the crescent, roll up, and bake.
13. Scalloped Potatoes
Can’t get enough potatoes? Then try dishing out a side of scalloped potatoes to compliment your potato soup.
Since this meal has a lot of potatoes in it, I like to switch it up by adding in some bits of bacon or chunks of ham to my scalloped potatoes.
14. Baked Chicken Wings
Nothing compares to the tender meat found in poultry. Potato soup night explodes with flavor when baked chicken wings are served.
When baking my wings, I make sure to mix a can of cream of mushroom soup and some water and then pour over the wings before baking.
15. Baked Sweet Potatoes
Baked sweet potatoes bring satisfaction and nutrition to the table. Another way to get your potassium in, sweet potatoes is more than just tasty.
I enjoy sweet potatoes cut in half with cinnamon, butter, and brown sugar sprinkled on top. Bake in an oven for fifty minutes and it’s a desert-style treat without too many calories.
There is no wrong way to eat your bratwursts. Whether you like them grilled, boiled, baked, or fried this sausage is a hands-down winner.
I like to wrap my bratwurst in bacon, and then place them in a pan with some corn on the cob, potatoes, and onions and bake.
17. Pumpkin Cheesecake
Pumpkin cheesecake is a top choice desert for potato soup. This rich side dish has a smooth and creamy texture that is perfect for a hearty soup.
I like to make my pumpkin cheesecake to the next level by topping it with some pecans. The pecans enhance the flavor while adding in some crunch.
