Sweet Dijon Glazed Ham

I don’t know about you, but I love a fresh baked ham, dripping with juices and coated in a flavorful glaze. I’m one of those people that prefer ham to turkey at Thanksgiving and occasionally I’ll make a big ham just for the heck of it. We love baked ham out of the oven with mashed potatoes and veggies, and then eat the leftovers on Hawaiian King rolls. This is a very simple recipe that coats the ham in a sweet, yet tangy, glaze that provides tons of flavor.

Ingredients

  • Olive oil
  • One 6-8 pound fully cooked spiral-cut bone-in ham
  • 1/2 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 3 tbsp. packed brown sugar
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. all spice
  • 1 and 1/2 tsp. cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp. freshly ground pepper

Instructions

Lightly oil a shallow baking pan. Place ham, cut side down, in pan and let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees and arrange rack in center. Whisk together all remaining ingredients and set aside.

Bake ham, uncovered for about 1 hour, depending on the size.

Pour glaze over the ham, using a basting brush to cover completely. Bake for another 15 to 20 minutes. The ham should be golden brown and an instant read thermometer inserted in the center (2 inches deep but not touching bone) should read 140 degrees. Remove from the oven and let stand 10 minutes before carving.

Serves: 8-10

    Ham is certainly a fantastic meat. I like having fresh cooked ham in a sandwich while its warm and still covered in juices
