In a small dish, mix cream cheese and dried fruit. Spread mixture onto 4 slices of bread. Spread orange marmalade on remaining 4 slices. Pair the slices to make 4 sandwiches.
In a baking dish large enough to hold the 4 sandwiches in a single layer, whisk together the eggs, egg nog, vanilla and nutmeg. Place sandwiches into the dish, turning over to allow bread to soak up the egg nog mixture.
Melt 1 tbsp (15 mL) butter in large, non-stick skillet over medium heat. Cook sandwiches in batches, about 2 min. per side to brown both sides. Add remainder of butter to skillet as required.
Transfer sandwiches onto cutting board; cut each in half. Plate 4 servings. Dust with icing sugar. Serve with maple syrup, if desired.
