Because of some unfortunate circumstances, I was not able to cook as many dishes at Easter that I had planned. In fact, I just cooked one: this tasty baked ham recipe that I saw on Trisha Yearwood’s show on the Food Network. Her show is one of my favorites because all of her dishes are fairly simple with ingredients that you will find in any grocery store.
When I saw this recipe, I knew it would be a perfect holiday main dish and it didn’t disappoint. I love using honey in recipes especially since my father-in-law and his first cousin have hives and process their own honey. The little bees that made this honey buzz around in my own backyard.
1 spiral sliced ham-Mine was approximately 10 pounds
1 cup honey
2 cups brown sugar
Adjust your oven racks to accommodate the ham and preheat to 350 degrees. Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place a rack on top of that. Spray both with non-stick spray. You will want a large baking pan with sides to catch the extra basting liquid.
Place the ham on the rack and cover the ham with foil as well. Place it in the oven and bake for half the estimated cooking time (about 20 minutes per pound).
When you are close to the halfway mark, heat the honey and brown sugar in a medium pan until the sugar dissolves.
Pour this over the ham and continue to cook, basting occasionally with the juices. Allow the ham to stand for a few minutes after it is done then slice and enjoy!
