Make the best Christmas Ham with my simple recipe and tips! This delicious ham with a sweet glaze will be the star of your holiday dinner.
If you have leftovers, don’t forget to use them and make my Leftover Ham Casserole or the Ham and Bean Soup.
Baking ham for the holiday dinner could not be easier. If you are like me and like to buy the fully-cooked bone-in spiral cut ham, the only thing we need to worry about is the glaze. The ham is already cooked and sliced, we need to add flavor. I like the combination of orange juice, spices (cinnamon, cloves, ginger and allspice) with dark brown sugar (to keep the ham super juicy). It’s perfect!
- ham: mine is fully cooked, bone-in, spiral cut
- orange juice
- unsalted butter
- spices: cinnamon, cloves, ginger, allspice
- brown sugar: I recommend dark
- mustard: Dijon or honey
