Maple-Glazed Ham Steak

The Real Honey Baked Ham

"Having worked at the Honey Baked Ham Company, I can say that the instructions are spot on. Probably the most important point is to buy a good-quality smoked ham"

-Richard M.

Ham with Pineapple-Honey Glaze

"It was absolutely super moist from the first slice until the last. My entire family loved the ham and glaze and requested it for Thanksgiving next year. Not to mention that it was super easy—I felt guilty because it tastes so good without huge effort."


Brown Sugar Glaze for Ham

"This was very easy to follow through with, and I had all ingredients in my kitchen! Not only was it easy to make, but it tastes YUM! I almost wanted to lick my plate clean, no joke."


Strawberry-Glazed Ham

"My family absolutely devoured this ham for our Easter dinner. My husband was at my side while I was carving, picking at the delicious strawberry glazed skin. He loves that part the best, and so do I, so we fought over the last piece!"


Baked Ham with Brown-Sugar Glaze

"The ham was lovely and moist and the glaze was just perfect! I made sure to keep glazing the ham to ensure the flavors were well in there and it turned out beautifully!"


Fruity Honey Baked Ham Copycat

"We just had one of the best Easter meals I've ever made thanks to this recipe. My family loved the ham, and it was so simple. I didn't caramelize the ham, but it was awesome just the same."


Baked Ham with Cloves & Cinnamon

"I made this delicious baked ham recipe for Easter and it was very, very tasty and moist! My family gave me so many compliments. I followed the recipe as directed and it came out perfect! The best main course I have ever made."


Savory Spiral-Cut Ham

"Excellent recipe! I will use this again and again. It created an extremely moist, flavorful ham. I didn't have orange juice concentrate, so I used 1/4 cup of orange soda instead and it turned out fine."


Easter Ham with Pineapple & Clove

"Being from Virginia I've cooked many a ham, but this recipe by far is the best. I added pineapple slices on mine and then cut up a little bit and put in the glaze. The juice from this made the most awesome sauce—I couldn't believe how good it was."


Easy Raisin Sauce for Ham

"Excellent sauce! Has a slight sweet and sour flavor but not as strong as something like dipping sauce for egg rolls. Went very nicely with ham!"


Easter Ham with Orange & Sugar Glaze

"Thank you, not only for the wonderful ham recipe, but also for the advice. I was always under the assumption that spiral ham was the way to go. This was my first attempt at making my own ham and it was very easy, delicious and moist."

-Bay Laurel

Baked Honey Mustard Ham

"Wonderful ham! I put mine in the slow cooker on low for seven hours. About an hour before serving I started basting the ham. I used ground cloves, spicy brown mustard and lemon juice instead of orange. Love the spicy sweet flavor with the ham, so good!"


Crock Pot Maple Ham

"This is an excellent method for cooking half of a ham. Definitely a "keeper" to use with a regular smoked or spiral cut ham. We served eight people and still had a mountain of leftovers. The taste is holiday spiced, nice and somewhat sweet without being overboard."


Honey Whiskey Clove Ham

"Simple indeed, which I love about this glaze. Instead of the ground cloves, I scored the ham and inserted whole cloves, then brushed the glaze over. The cooking technique was perfect and I've never thought of doing it that way."
