It’s the holiday season, and that means it’s time to break out the honey baked ham! This classic holiday dish is a favorite for many, and it’s surprisingly easy to make. Here’s how to cook a honey baked ham that will be the star of your holiday meal.
First, you’ll need to buy a pre-cooked ham. Look for one that’s labeled “fully cooked” or “ready to eat.” You can find these at most grocery stores.
Once you have your ham, preheat your oven to 325 degrees. Place the ham in a roasting pan and cover it with foil. Bake the ham for about 10 minutes per pound.
While the ham is baking, make the glaze. In a small saucepan, combine 1/2 cup of honey, 1/4 cup of brown sugar, 1/4 cup of orange juice, and 1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard. Heat the mixture over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the sugar is dissolved.
When the ham is done baking, remove it from the oven and brush the glaze over the top. Return the ham to the oven and bake for an additional 15 minutes.
Once the ham is done baking, let it rest for 10 minutes before slicing. Serve with your favorite sides and enjoy!
With just a few simple steps, you can make a delicious honey baked ham that will be the star of your holiday meal. So don’t be intimidated – give it a try and enjoy the deliciousness!
