4. Heat the butter in a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat using two of the Flavor Pro™ gas burners.

5. Add the smoked onion rings to the skillet and saute for 20-25 minutes or until dark brown and caramelized. Add garlic and thyme leaves and saute for another 2 minutes then remove from heat.

6. Let cool then finely chop onion mixture to your desired consistency for the dip.

7. In a bowl, mix sour cream, mayo, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper. Fold in the onion mixture.

8. Refrigerate overnight to allow flavors to intensify.
