“Eating eggs benedict reminds me of the time I lived in the Netherlands. Those were my Holland days”

"Hollandaise” sauce sounds like “Holland days.” Of course, there are jokes.

“I used to make a special egg yoke/butter sauce in an Amsterdam cafe in my youth, or my ‘#Holland days’ as I call it. #dailypun” was posted on Twitter by Simon Spooner on June 4, 2014. “Some of my fondest memories are of the time I spent mixing egg yolks, butter and lemon juice in the Netherlands. I miss my Holland days” was posted on Twitter by Michael Badham on June 29, 2018.

“Every time I eat eggs benedict I’m reminded of my time in the Netherlands.  You know, my ‘Holland days’” was posted on Twitter by PT Inquest on May 28, 2019. “Whenever I eat eggs benedict it reminds me of the time I lived in the Netherlands… Those were my Holland days” was posted on Twitter by The Dad Joke Man on September 10, 2020.

“INTERROGATOR: ‘Tell me who told you about our Dutch national holidays’ ME: ‘You mean my Holland days source?’” was posted on Twitter by Adam Sharp on April 27, 2020.


Wikipedia: Hollandaise sauce
Hollandaise sauce (/hɒlənˈdeɪz/ or /ˈhɒləndeɪz/; French: [ʔɔlɑ̃dɛz]), formerly also called Dutch sauce,[1] is an emulsion of egg yolk, melted butter, and lemon juice (or a white wine or vinegar reduction). It is usually seasoned with salt, and either white pepper or cayenne pepper.

Hollandaise is one of the five mother sauces in French cuisine. It is well known as a key ingredient of eggs Benedict, and is often served on vegetables such as steamed asparagus.

Did I ever tell you about the year I spent in Amsterdam, delivering eggs, butter, and lemons?
Of course, that was back in my Holland days…

Bedankt voor het luisteren!  I hope that means “thank you for listening”
Plus do JW’s English puns translate? Like this:
Every time I eat eggs benedict I’m reminded of my time in the Netherlands.  You know, my “Holland days.”
However, that may not be funny in any language?
