Not-So-Sweet Baked Ham


You don't have to use the traditional sticky-sweet, brown sugar glaze for your holiday ham. I like my ham to taste like ham, and I like my recipes to be easy. This simple recipe is made with just ham and chicken broth for a more savory version that will be just as popular with your guests.

  • 1 (15 pound) ham

  • ¾ cup chicken broth


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Place ham in a large baking dish with the fatty side facing up; pour chicken broth over top.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven, basting with broth every 20 to 30 minutes, until heated through, about 1 1/2 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

  4. Discard broth before slicing and serving ham.
