Preheat the oven to 425°F. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; add onions. Cook at least 3 minutes before stirring (onions should start to brown before you move them around). Continue to cook, stirring only occasionally, about 20 minutes, until onions are soft and well browned. Add thyme and season with salt and pepper. Spread bread slices with a little mustard. Divide onion mixture evenly over bread slices then top each with cheese. Place on a foil-lined baking sheet; bake 10 minutes or until cheese is melted.
