I can't remember the last time I had the soup at O'Charleys, but if it's better than this, I'll be amazed!

(Note: you can substitute milk for all or part of the half and half to reduce fat content, I used 2 cups milk and 2 cups half and half.

Ingredients

1 1/2 lb
red potatoes
1/8 c
butter
1/8 c
flour
4 c
half and half (see personal note above)
1/2 pkg
velveeta cheese, melted (8 oz)
1/2 tsp
hot pepper sauce (red tobasco)
TO TASTE:
white pepper
garlic powder
FOR TOPPING AFTER PUT IN SERVING BOWLS
shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 lb
crispy fried bacon, crumbled (optional, if serving to vegetarians!)
fresh chives (dried is okay)
fresh parsley (dried is okay)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Wash but don't peel potatoes, dice into 1/2 inch cubes.
2
cover with water and bring to boil in large saucepan.
3
boil until about 3/4 cooked, 10-15 minutes.
4
in a separate pan, melt butter on low heat and then mix flour in. Mix until smooth.
5
gradually add half and half to the mixture, stir constantly until smooth and thickened.
6
Add melted Velveeta Cheese, stir well.
7
Add drained potatoes to mixture.
8
Add white pepper, garlic powder and hot pepper sauce (start with a 1/2 tsp. and add more if you like it hot!)
9
Cover, cook for 30 mins on low, stir occasionally.
10
Time to serve! After pouring into serving bowls, each diner can add cheddar, bacon, chives, and parsley to taste. Enjoy!

Did mine in the crockpot this evening. Had it on for about 1 1/2 hrs. Turned out great. I did not use half and half though. I used 1 can evaporated milk, the starchy water from the potatoes and 2% milk. (Didn't have any 1/2 & 1/2). So don't know if that would have an effect on it. I also added chopped onions that I cooked in the bacon drippings (from the bacon for the topping), then added my flour to that instead of using butter. Turned out wonderful!

Hmmm....never made it in the crock pot before. The O'Charley's version calls for making it on the stove so I'm not really sure. I guess you could probably use a crock pot and cook for longer on low, but you should be stirring it every now and then. Honestly, I've never used a crock pot for anything but my vegetable stew so I'm probably not the best person to ask! Anyone else have any idea?

So if I put it into a crock pot,instead of cooking on top of the stove,would I just 60 minutes instead of 30 minutes?
