Sweet caramelized onions, in tandem with a fragrant blend of dried herbs, make a pleasing background for nutty Gruyere in this variation on the classic Swiss cheese fondue. If you like a milder fondue, substitute another Swiss cheese for part of the Gruyere. Serve with crust cubes of rosemary bread, bite size pieces of cooked beef, chicken or sausage, oven roasted whole mushrooms, fennel slices and other crisp vegetables.Unknownsource
