Mix cream cheese, pumpkin puree, maple syrup and pumpkin pie spice together in a small bowl. Spread on four slices of bread and sandwich the remaining slices on top, pressing the edges to seal them.
Whisk the eggs and milk together in a shallow dish. Add the chopped pecans to a plate. Dip each sandwich first into the egg mixture and then into the pecans, making sure it is evenly coated everywhere.
Heat a frying pan on medium heat. Spray the pan with cooking spray and cook each sandwich on both sides until browned and crispy.
Serve with additional maple syrup and pomegranate if you like.
