Glazed Spiral-Cut Holiday Ham

We love a spiral-cut ham, but we don't like the sugary mystery glaze that comes with it. Toss the packet and use one of our three easy and unique glaze recipes instead.

  • Yield: Makes 8 to 10 servings
  • Hands-on: 10 Minutes
  • Total: 3 Hours, 20 Minutes



Preheat oven to 350°. Place ham half, cut side down, in a heavy-duty aluminum foil-lined jelly-roll pan; let stand at room temperature 30 minutes. Brush 1/2 cup desired glaze over ham. Bake, uncovered, on lowest oven rack 2 1/2 to 3 hours or until a meat thermometer inserted into thickest portion registers 140°, basting every 30 minutes with 1/2 cup glaze. Remove from oven, and spoon pan drippings over ham. Let stand 10 minutes.

Note: We tested with Smithfield All Natural Spiral Sliced Smoked Uncured Ham.
