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 considering we grew up on a poultry farm there was always, always tonnes of eggs …..remind me to tell you just how many we used trying to perfect pavlova…..too many!

Anyway, this condensed milk mayo is super simple and super tasty. Condensed milk, malt vinegar and dry mustard powder mixed together and seasoned with salt and pepper. Condensed milk mayonnaise also keeps for yonks in the fridge. Too darn easy!

Condensed milk mayonnaise – Original recipe

This Nestle recipe has been around for decades, probably well before supermarkets sold salad dressing or salad cream. Our Mum always used malt vinegar, where the original recipe used white. Mum also doubled the amount of dry mustard powder in her recipe.

Delicious variations

  • Try adding a couple of tablespoons of fresh cream, a squirt of tomato ketchup and a dash of tabasco for a delicious seafood cocktail sauce
  • Adding loads of fresh snipped chives through the condensed milk mayonnaise gives a delicious burst of flavour to egg salad sandwiches
  • add a little curry powder
  •  mix it through your next potato salad.

  2. My Grandmother used to make this mayo! Living on an isolated property she had all the tricks to rustle up a 3 course lunch out of seemingly nothing. This was a staple in the fridge. We loved it on shredded lettuce.

  3. If you’re trying for gf don’t use malt vinegar. My daughter is celiac and eating this would make her extremely ill. I’ve never tried it with white vinegar, mum always made it with malt. Has anyone tried white? Is it as good?

      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.
