A quick and easy dip made in the microwave! Can’t get much easier than this.
Serves: 6 to 8
Prep Time: 15 minutes
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, at room temperature
1 1/2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
1/3 cup mayonnaise (low fat is fine)
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted
1. In a medium mixing bowl, beat all ingredients except almonds at a medium speed until well blended. Stir in almonds.
2. Spread into small, decorative casserole dish or 8x8-inch glass dish.
3. Microwave about 6 minutes, or until Swiss cheese is melted and mix is warm (stir after 4 minutes). Do not overcook.
4. Stir before serving. Serve with crackers or rye bread rounds
*To toast almonds, heat a skillet and place almonds inside. Saute the almonds (dry) stirring every 30 seconds or so, until almonds begin to turn golden brown. Tend to them closely so they don't burn.
*If you would rather bake this in the oven, bake at 350 degrees F. for 15 minutes, stirring halfway through.
