Can you believe it is Thursday already? Crazy I know – the weeks seem to be all a blur. September is upon us and it is that time of year when things start to get hectic for a lot of families and students. With that being said, I want to share with you a super simple recipe to glaze a ham.
This is great for a hot meal paired with scalloped potatoes, a cold sandwich, or served chilled with potato salad. The leftovers are great for a quiche as well as a topping for a quick salad. This ham is very straight forward to prepare and is great to do up in advance. From a price perspective it is very economical and stays well in the fridge.
- 1 Ham
- 2 Tbsp. Brown Sugar
- 1 Can sliced pineapple
- 1 Tbsp. Maple Syrup
- 1 Tbsp. Mustard ( prepared )
- Boil ham for 20-30 minutes depending on the size
- Remove from water and let rest
- Place in roasting pan or on tin foil plate
- Add remaining ingredients (except pineapple) in a bowl and mix thoroughly
- Spoon sauce over ham saving some for basting
- Take the slices of pineapple and place toothpicks through the ham to hold them in place
- Bake at 325 degrees for 30-45 minutes.
- Baste with remaining sauce halfway through
- Remove from oven; let rest and carve once cooled slightly
Zesty Tip: For small hams, roasts or chickens, use tin foil plates or tin foil roasting pans to avoid the tough cleanup. They are a great time saver and great for potlucks as well.
