Rustic Potato Soup is a soup recipe that you will want to turn to again and again. We’re keeping things rustic by simmering mini halved potatoes in a decadent broth of chicken stock, herbs and cream. Top the potato soup with crispy bacon, shredded cheddar and chopped green onions for the ultimate spoonful.


  • 1 1/2 pounds mini Yukon gold potatoes, smaller ones halved and larger ones quartered
  • 1 1/2 pounds mini red potatoes, smaller ones halved and larger ones quartered
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 64 oz chicken stock
  • 8 oz heavy cream
  • 1 cup sour cream


  • Crispy bacon pieces
  • Shredded cheddar cheese
  • Diced green onion


  1. Melt the butter over medium heat in a large Dutch oven or soup pot. Add in the onion and salt and allow to sauté for a couple minutes until translucent, not allowing to brown. Add in the thyme and flour and stir to coat. Allow to cook for a about a minute.
  2. Pour in the chicken stock to de-glaze the pan. Stir together to combine. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and then add in the potatoes to boil. Boil the potatoes for about 25 minutes, or until they are fork-tender.
  3. Reduce the heat to low before pouring in the heavy cream and sour cream, not allowing to boil. Bring to a simmer and allow to simmer and combine for another 10-15 minutes.
  4. Serve the soup topped with desired toppings. Enjoy!


  • Leave the skin on the potatoes for a true “rustic” feel.
  • If you can’t find mini variations of the potatoes, use the regular-sized ones but cut them down into 1-inch sized pieces.
  • Quick tip: after the soup has cooked allow it to cool and thicken slightly before serving. Hot soup right off the burner will always be thinner!
  • Leftovers of this soup store and re-heat wonderfully!
