2 teaspoons distilled white vinegar
2 English muffins, split and toasted
2 teaspoons butter
4 slices Canadian bacon
4 large eggs
4 slices cheddar cheese
1 cup fresh salsa verde
1/4 cup sliced black olives
2 tablespoons chopped green onion or cilantro leaves


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

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

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.

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