Slice the French bread on a slant, giving each side of the slice a nice surface area. Make a slit in each slice of French bread through the crust to form a pocket. Place a slice of cream cheese in each pocket; set aside.
In a small bowl, beat together eggs, Irish cream liqueur, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Melt butter in a frying pan over medium-low heat. Briefly dip the bread slices in the egg mixture and place on the pan. Brown on both sides and serve warm with a dollop of orange marmalade on top.
