In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook bacon until crisp. Remove and place on a paper towel lined plate. Once cooled, break into bite size pieces. Drain the bacon grease and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to pan and return the pan to medium-high heat. Add pineapple wedges to the hot pan and sear on all sides until deeply golden. Remove pineapple from the pan and let rest on a plate.

Push the onions to the edge of the pan and add 2 eggs. Begin stirring the eggs immediately. Once they have scrambled, begin to mix them into the onion garlic mixture.
