60 Second Condensed Milk Mayonnaise

We grew up with Mum’s condensed milk mayonnaise. There was always a Tupperware container of it in the fridge ready to smear on an egg salad sandwich, and considering we grew up on a poultry farm there was always, always tonnes of eggs …..remind us to tell you just how many we used trying to perfect pavlova…..too many!

Anyways as this mayonnaise was always on hand it was perfect for after school sandwiches.

Crusty white sourdough bread smeared with mayonnaise, cold thinly sliced iceberg lettuce, thin slices of tomato and cucumber, salt pepper and some shaved ham makes for a perfect sandwich.

Condensed milk mayonnaise – Original recipe

This Nestle recipe has been around for decades, probably well before supermarkets sold salad dressing, or salad cream.

The recipe was on the label and this is the recipe we both always make and have on hand in the fridge, particularly in the warmer months.

Our Mum always used malt vinegar, where the original recipe used white. It’s piquant with the mustard powder and malt vinegar and you’d think it would be super sweet, but it’s not.

Two minute condensed milk mayonnaise

Condensed milk mayonnaise is super quick and easy to make. All you need to do is pour the condensed milk into a small bowl and add the vinegar, mustard powder, salt and pepper and give it all a good mix. 

Pour the mayonnaise into a container with a lid and refrigerate it. The mayonnaise thickens up from when it is first mixed which makes it spreadable. 

It keeps for months refrigerated.

      Hi Robyn, sure enough after checking malt vinegar does contain small amounts of gluten so thanks for the insight into malt vinegar…….
      Originally the recipe was printed on the Nestlé condensed milk can and it used white vinegar. Our mother like yours always made this recipe with malt, but we think it would definitely be worth giving it a try. Would love to hear how it turns out if you use the white vinegar. Jo and Jen

    This certainly is a trip down memory lane. My mum always used white vinegar and it was delicious. She also added chopped gherkins or MasterFoods Gherkin Relish to make a tartare sauce. Old fashioned and still yummy.
