 2 teaspoons distilled white vinegar
 2 English muffins, split and toasted
 2 teaspoons butter
 4 slices Canadian bacon
 4 large eggs

Bring vinegar and 1 qt. water to a simmer in a pan over medium heat.

Step 2

Meanwhile, spread muffins with butter. Top each with a slice of bacon.

Step 3

Reduce heat under water to low. Crack eggs one at a time into a small bowl or ramekin and slip into water. Cook until whites are set but yolks are still runny, about 8 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer eggs to muffins.

Step 4

Top each egg with a slice of cheese and the salsa, olives, and green onion.
