To begin making Swiss Cheese Dip I grated some swiss cheese.

Then I diced up some yellow onions.

I added the grated cheese and diced onions to a mixing bowl.

Then I dumped in some dairy free cream cheese, Miracle Whip, garlic powder and nutmeg.

The cream cheese I used (Tofutti) was soft but if yours is not you can microwave it to soften it up before adding it to the mixing bowl.

I used a fork to cream and blend all the ingredients together.  Be sure the cream cheese is well blended in to the other ingredients.

Next I spread the mixture into a deep dish pie plate and covered the top with some sliced almonds.

Then I set the pie plate into a preheated 400F oven for 30 minutes until it was brown and bubbling around the edges.  It was also golden across the top.

Let people dip crackers right into the main serving dish or scoop out individual bowls of dip if that makes you more comfortable.

However you choose to serve this dairy reduced version of Swiss Cheese Dip, it will certainly be a hit at any gathering!

    If you toast the almonds first and then add some to the mixture it gives it an awesome Smokey crunch. Really good.
