Making a holiday meal doesn’t have to be difficult. If you’re looking to cook up a delicious honey-glazed ham dinner for Easter 2019, don’t look any further. The following recipe will help you craft a show-stopping meal in your oven in just five easy steps.

You’ll Need

In order to make this meal, you’re going to need to make sure you have the necessary ingredients and cooking essentials.

Ingredients

  • 10-pound smoked ham (bone-in)
  • 1.5 cups of packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup of clover honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground mustard (optional)

Tools

  • Large roasting pan
  • Medium-sized saucepan
  • Meat thermometer
  • Carving knife
  • Cutting board
  • Measuring cup
  • Tin foil

Recipe

The following recipe is a combination of Betty Crocker, AllRecipe.com and Food Network Magazine's guides, as well as my own findings, to making the perfect honey-glazed ham.

1. After heating your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, unwrap your ham, rinse it with cold water, and place it on the roasting pan. Lightly cover the top of the ham with tin foil.

2. Place the ham in the oven once the desired temperature is reached and allow it to cook for roughly 1.5 hours (or 12 to 16 minutes per pound).

3. Make the honey-glaze mixture while the ham is cooking. Heat your saucepan and combine the brown sugar and honey. (If you want to add ground mustard to the mix, this is where you will do it.) Cook the ingredients over medium-high heat until the contents appear smooth.

4. When the 1.5 hours is up, remove the ham from the oven and the tin foil and gently pour the glaze mixture on top of the meat. Then, place the ham back into the oven and allow it to cook for an additional 1.5 hours or until the meat thermometer reads 160 degrees Fahrenheit.

(Tip: If you want a caramelized look, leave the ham in the oven for an additional five minutes with the broiler on.)

5. Once your ham is finished cooking, allow it to sit outside of the oven for at least 15 minutes before carving. After you’re done preparing the ham, serve and enjoy!
