Selena's notes for this recipe:
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.

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?

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?
