In saucepan, bring beer to simmer over medium heat; stir in cheese until melted. Whisk in beaten eggs, mustard, salt, pepper and Worcestershire sauce; cook until thick enough to coat back of spoon, 2 minutes.

Place toast on rimmed baking sheet; pour cheese mixture over each. Broil until cheese is golden, about 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, in shallow saucepan, bring 3 inches (8 cm) water to boil. Add vinegar; reduce heat to simmer. One at a time, break whole eggs into dish and gently slip into water; cook until whites are set and yolks are still liquid, 3 to 5 minutes. With slotted spoon, remove and drain well. Spoon onto each toast; sprinkle with cayenne.

Tip: To broil tomatoes, cut 2 large ones crosswise in half; place cut side up on rimmed baking sheet. Brush with 1 tsp (5 mL) olive oil; season with salt and pepper and broil until softened, about 10 minutes.
