My family does this every year with our Christmas Eve ham and it never fails to be anything but delicious!

Honey Glazed Ham

Rating: Unrated
This ham tastes very much like the famous honey baked ham but costs much less, and there's no need to fight the crowds at holiday time. You can even buy the ham presliced to make it easier and more like the original. It is very good. (I do this while preparing the rest of the meal in the kitchen so that I don't forget to baste!)

This succulent ham is a family favorite that I've adapted for my own tastes. This makes an amazing Easter dinner ham that complements many side dishes.

Chipotle Pineapple Ham

Easter Ham with a chipotle/pineapple/bourbon mixture that's to die for! Don't want to take credit for it though, it's a mixture of a couple recipes that I found.

Always Juicy Baked Ham

Rating: Unrated
A never-fail recipe that is a family favorite. Frequent basting during the cooking time is key to a delicious result. We can't help taking several tester bites while waiting for dinner to be ready. Makes great leftovers for sandwiches. A Maritime tradition with home-baked beans and bakery fresh bread. Also fantastic with potato scallop and buttered green beans.

Easy Slow Cooker Ham

This recipe has become, hands-down, my favorite ham! This has replaced our Christmas Ham and makes the entire house smell amazing! There is nothing like coming home with this ham cooking! Experiment with the amounts of seasonings to your liking. I prefer more nutmeg but some prefer less nutmeg and more maple syrup!

Slow Cooker 5-Ingredient Ham

Rating: Unrated
Made this for several holidays and it's always a big hit. Not only is it simple, fast, and easy to put together, but it's perfect for a busy weekday. I turn on the slow cooker before I leave for work and it's ready when we get home. Very moist and tender, feeds a crowd!

Tangy Honey Glazed Ham

Rating: Unrated
I came up with the glaze for this ham using ingredients on hand and it's the best I've ever tasted. If you have any glaze left over, you can add it to the pan drippings with a little flour or cornstarch and make a nice sauce to accompany the meat. Use the bone and ham trimmings to make soup afterwards.
