Easter Supper: Maple & Mustard Glazed Ham

that's one happy ham

Nothing against turkey, but ham has always been my favorite holiday food. So Easter supper is one of my favorite meals of the year. I just love the way ham has that sweet and salty flavor, which I’ve amped up with an easy maple & mustard glaze. It gave my spiral ham an amazing “crust” that had my friend Lianne & I picking off slices long after dinner was done.

Maple & Mustard Glazed Spiral Ham
– 1 9 ¼ lb bone-in spiral ham
– ½ cup of maple syrup
– ½ cup of brown sugar
– 2 tablespoons of whole grain mustard
– ½ teaspoon of black pepper
– ¼ teaspoon of all spice

Heat your oven to 300º.

Place the ham in a roasting pan and add about 1 ½ cups of water. Cover with foil and bake for 1 hour and 30 minutes, or until heated through.

Add the syrup, brown sugar, mustard, pepper and all spice to a saucepan and heat over medium heat. Simmer for 2 minutes and remove from the heat.

Remove the ham from the oven and remove the foil. Raise the oven temperature to 400º. Brush or pour the glaze over the top of the ham. Return the ham to the oven and cook, uncovered, for 20 minutes or until the glaze is caramelized and bubbly. Let the ham rest 10 minutes before serving.

a perfect easter supper

Do you see the size of that thing? Anyone have some good ideas for leftover ham? And, anyone want to guess what else we ate? (Note: those treats in the back will appear here very soon.)
