Cheese - gruyere or parmasean?

Recipe calls for Gruyery (sp). (French Onion Soup - with toasted bread covered in cheese).

I have Edam or Parmasan. but couldn't get Gruyear.

what would you use?

I would make a mixture of the two and put on :) yum!

Parmesan is a very different cheese from both Edam or Gruyere closest to Gruyere is Edam

Yip. Me too. Yummo!

Edam would be closer but French Onion soup made with real Gruyere is nice.

Edam is nothing like gruyere

Neither - Moore Wilsons have Gruyere, buy it every time I'm in Welly, otherwise use Swiss cheese (possibly Mainland) for the flavour and "stringy" melt
