Low carb French onion soup.

Sunday night my husband and I were just hanging out talking about dinner. He mentioned French onion soup and so I knew instantly what had to be done. We ran to the store and I got some beef broth + onions + smoked Gruyere. This recipe is so simple anyone could make it.

For 8 servings.
6 tbsp of butter
2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
1 container of beef broth {32 oz}
2 medium size onions of any variety (I like Spanish and white)
1 tsp of dried thyme
Salt and pepper to taste
8 oz of cheese of choice. I suggest Gruyere, provolone, or Swiss. Anything smoked is good too!
Small bag of plain pork rinds.
Ramekins or oven safe bowls for soup
