Easy to Make Glazed Ham Recipes

Looking for delicious dinner ideas? A nice baked ham can be a great dinner for your family and friends. Here are two different recipes for glazed ham, both of them are absolutely delicious!

Which one will you try first?

If you are like me and have a small family you could take one ham and cut it into halves and then try both of these great and tasty recipes at once.


Honey Glazed Ham

Ingredients needed for Honey Glazed Ham:

6 lb. cooked ham
2 cups honey
1/4 cup dark corn syrup
2/3 cups butter

1/8 tsp white pepper
1/4 cup whole cloves

Honey Glazed Ham Preparation Instructions:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Line a roasting pan with foil and place the ham with the cut side down onto the pan. Score the outside of the ham with a sharp knife and place the whole cloves down into the scored areas.

Combine the honey, corn syrup, butter and pepper and heat the mixture until the butter melts. The mixture should have a smooth texture, stir constantly while heating to prevent sticking and scorching.

The honey glaze can be heated in a double boiler and be left on low heat to keep the mixture warm while the ham is baking.

Brush the entire ham with the honey mixture and cover with aluminum foil. Bake from 1 to 1 1/2 hours, basting the ham with the honey glaze every 15 minutes.

The foil can be removed for the last 5 minutes of baking time to caramelize the glaze.

Orange Cranberry Glazed Ham

Ingredients needed for Orange Cranberry Glazed Ham:

7 lb. cooked, smoked ham
1 cups packed brown sugar
1/4 cups packed brown sugar

3/4 cup cranberry juice cocktail
2 tbsp cider vinegar
1/4 cup honey
1 1/2 tbsp butter

whole cloves
1 1/2 tbsp prepared mustard
2 tsp all purpose flour

orange slices and cranberries for garnish

Orange Cranberry Glazed Ham Preparation Instructions:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Carefully cut the skin off of the ham and score it with a sharp knife. Place whole cloves inside the scored areas and put the ham in a roasting pan that has a rack to bake. Bake uncovered for 1 hour.

Combine 1/4 cup of the brown sugar, honey, vinegar, cranberry juice cocktail, butter and flour in a small pan and bring to a boil. Cook the mixture for 1 minute.

Coat the ham with the remaining 1 cup of brown sugar. Pour some of the hot cranberry glaze over the ham and bake for 30 more minutes, or until a meat thermometer reaches 140 degrees. Use the remaining cranberry glaze to baste the ham several more times during baking.
