This is the ham I use for the big holidays. Everyone looks foreword to it. My secret is that it's so easy. I pour the extra sauce in a small dish and use it for the ham--or my favorite is to pour it on homemade mashed potatoes. It's a VERY sweet sauce!
- any kind ham (I suggest boneless and not fatty)
- 1 1⁄2 cups yellow mustard
- 1⁄4 cup honey
- 1 1⁄2 cups granulated sugar
- 1 1⁄2 cups light brown sugar
- In a bowl mix together mustard and honey well.
- In a separate bowl mix together sugars.
- Coat ham with mustard mixture.
- Coat ham with sugar mixture.
- Bake as directed on ham package.
- Mustard and sugar will turn into a dark brown sauce. When that happens, start basting the ham every 15-20 minutes until it's done.
This has been the best recipe for ham I have ever made. My family is not a big fan of ham- something I became aware of AFTER I had already purchased the ham! - but decided to give this recipe a chance. Even my teenage daughter, who recently discovered that she hates ham (along with many other things), declared that she loved this one. I'll take that as a win!
This recipe made exactly the tangy kind of glaze I was looking for. Everyone loved it. Thank you for posting this recipe! YUM!
I used 1 c. mustard, sugar and brown sugar and it was plenty. This ham is delicious, and gets 5+ stars from us!!! DS, DD and myself thought it was the best ham we ever had! The top made a nice glaze and I couldn't leave it alone, as I love that nice crunchy skin. Yum Yum!
