Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Very lightly spray a 9-inch pie plate with nonstick cooking spray.

Combine the cream cheese, Swiss cheese, sliced almonds, mayonnaise, green onion, nutmeg, and pepper, stirring to blend well.  Evenly spread the mixture into the prepared pie plate.  Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes until heated through.  Garnish with the sliced toasted almonds.  Serve with assorted whole-grain crackers and/or celery sticks.
