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.

I did quite a few additions, but used ths as a base. I added 1 tsp chicken base flavoring, 1/2 tsp paprika, 1/2 tsp tumeric and 1 tsp italian seasoning. I also didn't use the bread crumbs on top, or green peppers (didn't have) and added chopped ham that needed to be used up. I added shredded colby jack to each layer and baked for 55 minutes covered and uncovered for 15 min. Absolutely delicious!

Wonderful! Wonderful! The only difference I made was to forget the bread crumbs and butter for the top and added a can of cream style corn instead. Loved it - really creamy and delicious! Old fashioned taste.

I have several scalloped potato recipes that I use in rotation. They are a bit different from each other. I think this one is my personal favorite.
