Few things impress guests quite as much as bringing a deliciously cooked, glossily caramelized ham out of the oven and placing it in the center of the table. Easy Honey-Mustard Glazed Ham seeks to make that feat of culinary indulgence just a little simpler without losing any of the flavors. The ham is just as juicy and savory as longer-cooked hams, made even more distinct with a sweet and tangy mustard glaze slathered overtop. Easy Honey-Mustard Glazed Ham is a melt-in-your-mouth meaty delight that amazes slice after glorious slice. Make sure you save some for sandwiches!


• 1 (12-15-pound) ham, fully cooked, bone-in • 1/2 teaspoon whole cloves • 1/2 cup dijon mustard • 1/2 cup honey • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper


Step 1

Score the surface of the ham with a sharp knife in a diamond pattern, about 1/4-inch deep.

Step 3

Stick the cloves in between the diamonds.

Step 4

Place the ham on a rack in a large roasting pan.

Step 5

Tent the ham with foil and bake until warmed through, about 2 hours.

Step 6

Mix the mustard, honey, and pepper in a medium bowl.

Step 7

Transfer the ham from the oven and uncover. Brush the ham with 1/2 of the glaze.

Step 8

Return the ham to the oven and bake until the ham looks glossy, for about 20 minutes.

Step 9

Brush the ham with the remaining glaze and bake until the glaze begins to caramelize, for about 20 minutes.

Step 10

Transfer the ham from the oven and let rest for 15-20 minutes. Serve.
