This Easy Baked Glazed Ham will be the star of your holiday table! This recipe will make your house smell amazing and it tastes even better!
This time of year I’m always looking forward to big holiday meals with the family. I love the selection of all my favorite dishes in one place. When else do you get a culmination of recipes from your whole family in one place? Ham is always the star of our holiday table. Last year I made this killer Brown Sugar Bourbon Ham and my husband raved about it. This year, I’m whipping up this super Easy Baked Glazed Ham for Christmas dinner! Classic flavors come together for a recipe you’ll treasure for years to come.
I love serving this baked ham up with 40-Minute Milk and Honey Dinner Rolls, Creamy Cornbread Casserole, and Grandma’s Mashed Potatoes. They’re the perfect sides. Now, if you really want to take this recipe over the top, Take all those yummy pan juices, strain them, and make ham gravy. Are you drooling yet? You should be! This ham is a guaranteed winner at the dinner table.
Easy Baked Glazed Ham
- One 10-pound fully cooked spiral cut ham
- 1 cup brown sugar
- One 8-ounce can crushed pineapple with juice
- 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons dijon mustard
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
- Kale for garnish
- Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F. Line a deep baking dish with heavy duty foil.
- Remove ham from packaging. (Discard glaze packet if your ham comes with one.) Place ham flat side down in the pan. Cook for 1 hour.
- Carefully remove ham from the oven. Using a spoon, drizzle half the glaze all over the surface of the ham. Use the back of the spoon to help smoosh some of the glaze between the layers. Bake for 30 minutes.
- Remove ham from the oven. Drizzle the remaining glaze over the ham. Bake for another 30 minutes until heated through.
- Remove from the oven. If you're making ham gravy, reserve the juices in the pan (there will be a good amount of liquid), otherwise discard the juices. Transfer the ham to a rimmed serving platter placing the flat side out so you can take slices of ham. I like to add some kale leaves around the edge of the dish for presentation points. Serve warm or at room temperature.
