    Skipped the first part of this recipe (for making the onion rings); I used Trader Joe’s onion rings instead. But the recipe also calls for 3 cups of milk, however this is not mentioned anywhere in the directions!
    I added it right before I baked the casserole; maybe I should have simmered it with the mushrooms etc. to thicken it??
    Dish was tasty but very thin. Either too much milk or it should have been cooked, but that was not part of the directions.
