Stay Moist Oven Baked Ham in a Bag

READY IN: 2hrs 10mins
Recipe by Marie

This produces a very flavorful moist ham with no basting and no messy clean-up. Use the regular Reynolds oven bags that you would use to roast a turkey.

I made this for a family dinner with the whole family at my house. The result was a very flavorful ham, and it was nice and tender. I thickened the juices by adding some water then adding some cornstarch to make the gravy. Really tasty over the ham!
