Brown Sugar & Honey Ham Glaze


I mentioned earlier this week (in Menu Monday) about having a ham dinner. I had bought a ham at Costco. The hams I buy have a packet of dry mix for making the glaze (just add water). It is very good and tasty.



However I realized with all the freezer work I must have punctured the packet of glaze and it had fallen out. So my ham had no glaze. I searched the web for something that would work. I found a lot of recipes but I just wanted a simple glaze. So I combined a couple different recipes and this is what I came up with...



This was delish!! (I know the pic does not look like much :), but it was easy to make and yummy.


My ham was about 9lbs and I baked it 325 for about 3 hours I pulled it out of the oven...



I spooned and spread the glaze over the ham. It was a spiral cut ham and I made sure to let the glaze drizzle as much as possible between the slices as well. I returned the ham to the oven and bumped up the heat to 400. It baked for about 20 to 30 minutes and this is what it looked like...





It tasted as good as it looked!!




With fall and the holidays coming up ham is often on the menu. If you need an easy glaze give this a try!!



Brown Sugar & Honey Ham Glaze

½ cup brown sugar
½ cup honey
2T Dijon mustard
½ t cinnamon
¼ t nutmeg

Mix all ingredients together with a wire whip. Spoon and spread over a baked ham. Return ham to the oven (uncovered). Bake at 400 for about 20 to 30 minutes or until ham is nicely browned.
