Chunky Potato Soup Recipe

This is a classic recipe used by my family, and it tastes absolutely amazing, containing large chunks of salami, potato, and other vegetables in a beautiful broth.

  • Serves 4-6
  • Preparation time: 30 minutes
  • Cooking time: 1+ hours


  • 2 large leeks
  • 3 large carrots
  • 4 large potatoes
  • 100g salami (preferably in chunks, and the Danish variety as it tastes the best)
  • 4 rashers of bacon
  • A pinch of salt and pepper
  • A handful of fresh, finely chopped marjoram leaves or 2 teaspoons of dried marjoram


  1. Wash, peel and dice the leeks, carrots and potatoes, and place in a large saucepan. Cover with water and bring to the boil, then simmer for 25 minutes.
  2. Cut the salami into small chunks.
  3. Cut the bacon into small strips and fry until cooked.
  4. Add the salami and bacon to the vegetables.
  5. Season with salt and pepper and add the marjoram.
  6. Bring back to the boil then simmer the soup for an hour – the longer it cooks, the better it tastes!
