Give your ham a flavor boost next time you plan on serving it. Glaze it with some delicious brown sugar and serve it with a tangy honey Dijon mustard sauce for the perfect zip. Even your leftovers will thank you.
Things You'll Need
- 1 large (8 to 10 lbs) fully cooked ham
- 1 ½ cups brown sugar, packed
- 6 tablespoons honey, divided
½ teaspoon mustard powder
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup Dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
- Salt and pepper to taste
Step 1: Make the Brown Sugar Glaze
Stir together the brown sugar, 3 tablespoons honey, mustard powder, black pepper, and salt.
Step 2: Score the Ham in a Diamond Pattern
Step 3: Glaze the Ham
Add the ham to a roasting pan, cut side down. Pack the top with the ham with the brown sugar mixture.
Step 4: Bake
Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 30 minutes or until the ham reaches 120 degrees Fahrenheit in the center with a cooking thermometer (since the ham is fully cooked, it does not need to be cooked higher). Slice just prior to serving.
Step 5: Make Extra for Serving
Stir together the mustard, remaining 3 tablespoons honey and vinegar. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve sauce alongside ham.
