  • Heat broiler.
  • Spread each bread slice with 1/4 tsp. dressing; place in single layer on baking sheet. Broil 1 to 2 min. on each side or until evenly toasted on both sides. Reserve for later use.
  • Heat remaining dressing in large nonstick skillet on medium heat. Add onions; cook 4 min. or until softened, stirring frequently. Add garlic; cook and stir 1 min.
  • Stir in pasta sauce, paprika and cumin. Bring to boil; cover. Simmer on medium-low heat 10 min. Carefully slip cracked eggs, 1 at a time, into pasta sauce mixture, leaving spaces between eggs; cook 3 to 5 min. or until egg whites are completely set but yolks are still runny, occasionally spooning hot pasta sauce over egg whites. Remove from heat.
  • Top with cheese and cilantro. Serve with toast slices.

Cooking Know-How

Spooning the hot pasta sauce mixture over the egg whites as they cook helps the egg whites cook faster, resulting in perfectly cooked egg yolks.

How to Add the Eggs

To prevent the egg yolks from breaking, crack the eggs, 1 at a time, into a small bowl before transferring the eggs to the skillet as directed.
