In a large bowl, add the water and salt; stir to combine.
Slowly pour in the cornmeal and mix for 1-2 minutes until the dough is smooth.
Divide dough into 8 even pieces; form each piece into a disc that is 4-5 inches in diameter.
Heat a greased grill pan over medium-high heat.
Add Arepas and cook for 5 minutes on each side.
Remove cooked Arepas from pan and slice across the middle.
Spread an even layer of garlic butter on each half.
Place 1/8 of the scrambled egg and 1 slice of bacon on the bottom half of the Arepa and top with the remaining half.
Repeat for remaining Arepas.
