Cut a parchment paper round the diameter of a large sauté pan, then cut a 2-inch circular vent in center.

Toss together cheese, cornstarch, and thyme.

Melt butter with oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat.

Add onions and broth, season with salt and pepper, and cook until broth nearly evaporates, about 15 minutes.

Cover onions with prepared parchment round, reduce heat to medium-low, and continue cooking until deep golden brown, stirring occasionally, about 30 minutes. Transfer onions to a bowl and increase heat to medium.

Deglaze pan with sherry and wine, scraping up any browned bits, and bring to a simmer. Whisk in cheese mixture a handful at a time, letting each addition fully melt before adding the next. Stir in caramelized onions, season with salt and pepper, and transfer to a warm fondue pot.
