Holiday Honey Ham Glaze

Rating: 4.5 stars 17
I created this glaze this past Thanksgiving holiday to cover a ham. My usual recipe called for brown sugar which I neglected to buy when doing my holiday grocery shopping. In my compromise, I created a glaze so amazing it would be a crime not to share it with the world.

Chef John's Honey-Glazed Ham

Rating: 5 stars 231
A great holiday ham glaze needs to have three things: wonderful flavor, gorgeous, shiny appearance, and a crispy, crackling crust you can hear across the room. I'm happy to report this easy-to-make glaze has all those things in abundance.

Homemade Deviled Ham Sandwiches

Rating: 4.5 stars 52
You will never again buy a ham spread product after tasting this recipe. Use your mini chopper or food processor to whip up a large or small batch. Easily modified for personal tastes, but try it once as written - it is delicious - AND - it's low-fat too! Make delicious sandwiches on your choice of bread with a thin coat of mayo, sliced bread and butter pickles, and a generous layer of Deviled Ham. Men and kids love these.

Slow-Cooked Honey-Glazed Ham

Rating: 5 stars 1
The secret of this tender honey-baked ham is slow cooking. I start it in a low temp oven around 6 p.m. the night before if used for breakfast. If used for dinner, it can be started later in the evening, turned off and restarted the next morning. Don't use a spiral-sliced ham because it will dry out.

Baked Hawaiian Roll Sandwiches

These Hawaiian rolls are layered with ham and Swiss cheese, flavored with lingonberry jam and honey mustard, and then baked until warm and melted.

Honey-Baked Spiral Ham in the Slow Cooker

Rating: 4 stars 3
The tastiest spiral ham ever made in the slow cooker.

Instant Pot® Honey-Glazed Ham

Rating: 5 stars 1
This recipe is for a bone-in, spiral-cut, pre-cooked ham. When you buy a spiral ham at the grocery store, it's almost always already fully cooked which means most of the time you just need to heat it through. The ham's packaging comes with suggestions about how long to cook or heat the ham and those suggestions always recommend using an oven. I'm here to tell you that I don't think I'll ever use an oven to warm a bone-in, spiral ham ever again after using an Instant Pot®!

Honey Bourbon Horseradish Glazed Ham

I posted this recipe for the glaze. It will work on any size ham, but cooking times will vary depending on the size and how you like to cook your ham. It is a thick, rich glaze. I only use the water packaged with the ham when I make it.
Instant Pot® Honey-Sriracha Glazed Ham

Change things up by adding some heat to your honey-glazed ham. Just a few minutes of your time and you can walk away while your Instant Pot® or multi-functional pressure cooker does the rest.
