Eggs Benedict and “dirtbag” don’t normally go in the same sentence, hollandaise being a rarified French sauce and all. But this recipe takes a brunch staple and makes it a backcountry kitchen possibility. It’s just 9 ingredients that altogether weigh about two pounds. Not too bad. Cooking time is about 20 minutes, and, voila, a little camp cooking luxury.
