Baked ham with a brown sugar mustard glaze and a touch of honey! The perfect baked ham recipe for both Thanksgiving and Christmas!
I’m always honest with you guys, therefore I have to admit that I’ll choose ham over roasted turkey any day of the week! My favorite meal consists of glazed ham and 5 cheese mac and cheese. So let’s talk hams…
What kind of ham did I use?
I used a fully cooked spiral sliced ham.
How did I bake the ham?
I placed the ham face down in a roasting pan and popped it in the oven for 30 minutes uncovered while I prepared the glaze. After I prepared the glaze, I poured about 1/4 cup of the glaze on the ham and repeated this step every 20 minutes.
Let’s talk about the glaze…
I didn’t cook the glaze on the stovetop because I felt it was unnecessary since it will cook in the oven anyway. The longer you let the glaze sit, the more it will thicken. You can certainly add some spice to the glaze if you’d like. Sriracha is a good option here. The glaze will be super sweet because the ham will be very salty.
You may rinse the ham and that will get rid of some of the salt. Make sure to pat the ham down with paper towel before placing it in the oven.
