Make our O’Charlies Baked Potato Soup Recipe at home tonight for your family.  Our Secret Restaurant Recipe for their Baked Potato Soup tastes just like O’Charlies’.

UPDATE – Yes, somehow we misspelled O’Charley’s on this post.  But we decided to leave it because it is getting quite a few visitors.  Apparently, we are not the only one who spell it the wrong way.  If you like, you can view the correctly spelled post at O’Charley’s Loaded Potato Soup.  The 2 posts and recipes are exactly the same except for the spelling.

O’Charlie’s is a VERY regional restaurant — mainly in the Midwest.

But even if you have never eaten at an O’Charlie’s or even heard of them, you are gonna LOVE O’Charlie’s Baked Potato Soup Restaurant Recipe.
