Brown Sugar Honey Baked Ham

This is the only way I make my ham for New Years and Easter.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 325.
  2. Rinse ham and place in large baking pan.
  3. Pour honey over ham. Using your hands, pack the brown sugar evenly over the ham, pressing firmly so that the sugar will stick.
  4. Cover and place in oven. Bake for 1 1/2 to 2 hours depending on size of ham. (Since it is fully cooked, all you are doing is warming it up.) Baste with juices.

I made this for Easter dinner with my sister and her family. Everyone said it was the best ham they have ever had. I did mine overnight in a large electric roaster. The meat was tender and the brown sugar and honey made the meat succulent. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks so much for posting this! I've never made a ham, don't like ham and of course won a ham at this year's Christmas party. Had no idea what to do with it. My mom used to poke cloves all over hers. Yuk. I REALLY like this ham! I didn't have a full 6oz of honey - probably more like 2oz - so I used about 2 cups of brown sugar. Very good. Super easy. Now I know I'm going to enjoy my leftovers! :) Thanks again!

OMG! YUMMY! Made the whole house smell divine! Kids kept asking how much longer. Had to tell all to eat some potatoes and beans and that they couldn't just have ham. Stupid easy recipe ingredients always on hand. Thank you for an awesome go to recipe for baked ham!! Cant wait to have some leftovers!! Makes my mouth water just thinking about it!
