Currently I have a network that looks like this:
 
ASA5510 - - - Internet - - - ASA5510
     |                                             |
EIGRP                                 EIGRP
     |                                              |
2821 -----------MPLS----------1841
                         BGP
 
The MPLS connection is currently down, I'm trying to run a failover Site-to-Site VPN over the internet. All of the examples I've read have both connections involved in the failover coming out of one device. Since I'm not working that way, what is going to be the best way to failover? Do I need to set up some sort of IP SLA in the config? Or can I somehow weight routes in EIGRP in a way that the connection will failover from Internet to MPLS when the MPLS goes down and vice versa when the MPLS connection comes back up?
 
This post has a very similar situation, but the instructions weren't detailed enough for me to follow: https://supportforums.cisco.com/thread/2006404

 
Any help is appreciated as these 2 sites are currently cut off from one another.
 
Thanks in advance.
