This Keto French Onion Soup tastes like Classic French Onion Soup without the added carbs.
I made this French onion soup recipe a while ago because I found myself unintentionally accepting 3 bags of onions from my mother.
Yes, yet again she gave me enough produce to feed an army. She never gives me one zucchini or butternut squash, or in this case, one bag of onions, it’s always a large quantity of that particular food.
As I stared at 3 bags of onions wondering what the heck I was going to do with them, my husband walked in and

Although, if you do omit the bread you won’t have the “authentic” French Onion Soup experience. On the other hand, authenticity would include real bread. Oops.
I tried. Still, I was very pleased with the final result.
So, next time life (or your mother) hands you bags of onions, make this delicious soup recipe! Or, make it anyway, onions are always so cheap anyway!
