Spread cream cheese mixture evenly onto two slices of bread and form a sandwich. Dip sandwich into egg nog mixture and place in a pan. Pan should be coated with non-stick coconut oil or olive oil spray, and should be over medium-high heat.

Let cook until golden brown on each side, should be slightly crisp. Remove from pan, cut down the middle, and serve with a drizzle of organic honey.
