makes four servings

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 medium onion, finely chopped
four 1/4-inch-thick slices of bacon (3 ounces), cut into 1/4-inch dice
1/2 cup sliced pitted kalamata olives
2 pickled jalapeños, seeded and diced
1 tomato, diced
6 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup shredded Gruyère cheese (3 1/2 ounces)
salt and freshly ground pepper
4 split English muffins, toasted
Hollandaise Sauce
1 tablespoon snipped chives

In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil. Add the onion and cook over high heat until softened, about 4 minutes. Add the bacon and cook, stirring, until very lightly browned, about 2 minutes. Add the olives, jalapeños and tomato and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the eggs and scramble, scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula, until just set, about 2 minutes. Add the Gruyère and stir just until melted. Season lightly with salt and pepper.

Arrange the toasted English muffins on 4 plates. Spoon the scrambled eggs on the muffins and top with the Classic Hollandaise Sauce. Garnish with the chives and serve right away.
