Scalloped Potatoes with Cheese

"AS A CHILD, I thought the crisp cheese-and-crumb topping on these potatoes made them a special treat. I remember how my aunt always saw to it everyone got some of that topping with their individual serving."

    Has anyone tried Durkee Onion rings instead of bread crumbs?

    I'm trying to figure out what I did wrong. I followed the ingredients however it ended up being VERY watery. Still great flavor but not creamy at all.
