When your stovetop is full, turn to this top-rated recipe for a microwave-friendly molasses-and-honey glaze. Reserve the drippings and cook them in a saucepan just before serving for a delicious bourbon ham sauce.

How to Make It

Step 1

Microwave honey and molasses in a 1-quart microwave-safe dish at HIGH 1 minute; whisk to blend. Whisk in bourbon, orange juice, and mustard.

Step 2

Remove skin and excess fat from ham, and place ham in a roasting pan.

Step 3

Bake at 325° on lower oven rack for 1 1/2 hours or until a meat thermometer inserted into thickest portion registers 140°, basting occasionally with honey mixture.

Step 4

Bring drippings and remaining glaze to a boil in a small saucepan. Remove from heat, and serve with sliced ham. Garnish, if desired.

This was very easy to make and big hit at the family Easter dinner. We plan to make it again, definitely. The bourbon flavor is pronounced so if your guests are not bourbon lovers, you might want to cut back to 1/3 c.

This was delicious, not too sweet as I had feared it would be. It got rave reviews from everyone who tried it. I will file this one with my favorite recipes.

I didn't have bourbon, so I used coconut rum. It was really delicious.
