This is a favorite on Easter. Everyone kept going back until the ham was gone. They loved this glaze which, by the way, I got from a church member.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Place ham in a large baking dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes. Whisk brown sugar, ginger ale, mustard, and cinnamon together in a bowl; brush over ham. Continue baking ham until the meat pulls away easily from the bone, about 45 more minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

Cook's Note:

I make my ham the day before not cooking it fully. The day of the event, usually the next day, I heat with a little water to steam it. I place the ham in a warmer as I serve buffet-style. I make a double batch of glaze, I then pour the glaze over ham.

This was my first time ever baking a ham & it turned out to be a HIT!!! I modified the recipe a little. I had to cook my ham in a roaster so to start off I dumped 2 16oz bottles of Verners ginger ale in the bottom of the roaster. I made up my mixture placed the ham inside & then basted it with the mixture. I then tooth picked 1 can of pineapple rings to the ham & basted it more. I cooked this ham at 275 for 45 basted the ham with whatever mixture I had left. Then cooked it for 45 more min at 350. Turned out Great!!! I can't wait to cook a whole bone in ham again! Read More

This glaze was a hit with those that like glazed ham. I heated the ham in a turkey sized cooking bag with a little ginger ale. Once warm I took some of the ham and glazed it and left the rest I plain. This worked well for everyone. Remember ham is fully cooked to begin with I recommend heating at a lower temperature to avoid it dry out. Read More

The only thing I changed was to adjust the time for my oven which runs a bit hot. We all loved it and my boys ate big portions each! Me too.:) I was really surprised so little soda wetted out the mixture but it worked perfectly. Read More

This recipe was outstanding. It was so good I made 3 more dishes with the ham throughout the week. Split ham and pea soup my husband ate this for dessert truly. Scalloped ham and potatoes. And last but not least homemade mac-n-cheese with chunks of ham. 10 out of 10. I will most certainly be preparing a ham this way again. Thanks All Recipes. Read More

This recipe is phenomenal! The second time I made it, I didn’t have any ginger ale, unfortunately. Instead, I packed all of the dry ingredients on the ham before baking. I couldn’t believe how good it was! It turned the brown sugar from a glaze into a crust. I think it tasted as good as the one you can buy from the overpriced ham store. Read More
