Most of you know that I LOVE sauces! Sauces can take a boring meal up to a delicious party in your mouth!

I have always wanted to own a keto restaurant and this past February, I felt like I owned one! I was a chef on a television show in Costa Rica and I cooked from 7:30am until 10pm! Almost all day, I cooked, prepped for meals and had to adapt meals on the fly for vegetarians. It was extremely hard work but I LOVED every minute of it!

We even spent a little time at an orphanage which was extremely emotional for me.

For the television show, I was constantly making a variety of sauces to go with the meals. One of them was butter mayo. My butter mayo happened by accident!

I do not know Spanish very well so when I had to grocery shop for the show, it was quite an adventure! I didn’t get half the ingredients I wanted but I’m really flexible and changed the menu to what I had available.

Another issue that happened on the television show is that Costa Rica customs did not allow the sponsor’s food items to be released. We were unaware of this when I first arrived in Costa Rica. As I grocery shopped, I did not buy salt because Redmond Real Salt was a sponsor and had a huge shipment sent; nor did I buy seasonings, natural sweetener, pork rinds or oils because the tv show had sponsors that sent a lot of product to feature on the show.

The first night that the crew and cast got together, I cooked without salt, seasonings, oil or butter! I didn’t have butter because I accidentally bought margarine! It was a nightmare but everyone loved the food! I found other ways to get in flavor; including BACON for salt!

Don’t worry, we returned the margarine and bought a lot of butter!

On the show I made a LOT of deviled eggs! Everyone loves deviled eggs and they are vegetarian which was nice to have offered for those who didn’t eat meat. I had to improvise because I didn’t have an immersion blender nor a whisk which makes making mayo quite difficult!

I like to make mayo with macadamia nut oil but all I had in the pantry was olive oil which can create a very strong flavor in a mayo.

Instead of using olive oil to make the mayo, I used BUTTER! Butter Mayo has the most amazing flavor and tastes great on everything; especially steak!

Everyone devoured my Butter Mayo deviled eggs and couldn’t get over how delicious they were! They all wanted to know my secret! I told them I used Butter Mayo! They all were intrigued and asked what butter mayo was so I showed them!

I highly suggest trying my butter mayo recipe! It is divine!

Actually, I loved being the chef so much that if you want me to be your private keto chef for an event or vacation, message me at Support@keto-adapted.com for pricing.

Servings 1 tablespoon
Calories 92


  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon Primal Kitchen Dijon mustard
  • ½ teaspoon Redmond Real salt
  • 1 cup butter melted (I recommend RAW Farms Dairy, click HERE and use code MARIA20 for 20%off)
  • beef broth or water, to thin (Optional)


  • Place the egg, lemon juice, mustard and salt in a wide-mouth, pint-sized mason jar.
  • Heat the butter until warm and melted.
  • Place the immersion blender at the bottom of the jar. Turn the blender on and very slowly add the melted butter while moving the blender to the top. Be patient!
  • Moving the blender slowly is key to getting the mayonnaise to emulsify. Voilà! Simple butter mayo!
  • Place in the fridge and allow to chill. If the butter mayo is too thick for your liking, add a tablespoon of beef broth or water and stir to combine well.
  • Store in the fridge for up to 5 days. Makes the best deviled eggs!
