Spicy Mustard Ham Glaze (Not Sweet at All)

I couldn't find a true savory ham glaze, so I made up my own. It turned out so well, I just had to share! I bought a large ham (bone-in of course!) that I wanted to use the left overs, for other yummies later in the week. I don't necessarily like the sweet ham glazes, as it seems to linger with the leftovers. This will be great in scalloped ham and potatoes, ham and beans, omlets, sandwiches.. you name it! Hope you enjoy!! :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. 1. In a small bowl, wisk all ingredients together.
  2. 2. Pat ham dry with papertowel.
  3. 3. Schmear all over ham.
  4. I put mine in the slow cooker for 8 hours on low, or you could bake, roast, smoke, or grill the ham, depending on your preference. You could also marinate the ham before cooking, but I just didn't think about this until the morning of.
  5. I made a double batch of this to use as a dipping sauce as well. Delish!

Not good at all. I don't really like sweet glazes so I thought I would give this a try but it was a total waste. The mustard gave the ham a sort of bitter taste and made the entire house smell like hotdogs....but not in a good way. Also, the cumin gave it an unpleasant, crunchy texture.<br/>On the upside I was able to scrape most of it off and the taste hadn't penetrated too deeply but it's kind of a bummer because the skin is my favorite part :(

Also not a fan of sweet glazes. Loved your creation! I subbed chili powder for cumin only because I didn't have any-worked great.
