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!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a bowl mix together mustard and honey well.
  2. In a separate bowl mix together sugars.
  3. Coat ham with mustard mixture.
  4. Coat ham with sugar mixture.
  5. Bake as directed on ham package.
  6. 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.

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!

I am not a huge fan of ham except for "Honey Baked Ham Company" hams. I made this for 16 friends and family for Easter and it got really rave reviews. The ham was moist and flavorful. I had 18 pounds of ham (2 hams) and had leftover mustard. I would 1/2 the mustard sauce next time, but other than that, not change a thing!
