Upgrade your holiday ham with this simple recipe for Maple Mustard Glazed Ham.
Ham and the holidays go hand in hand. For one, you can purchase a nice size one and feed so many people with very little work. Adding the glaze takes just a few minutes and the rewards are delicious. Secondly, a little salty with a lot of wonderful smoky flavor, ham brings balance to all the rich sides and sweetness of your holiday table. We chatted a bit last week about Friendsgiving, an annual tradition around our house, we look forward to gathering with our friends each year over turkey and ham. I like to serve both because I have an irrational fear of running out of the main dish at any large gathering. And I’m a firm believer that there was never a meal that wasn’t made better by a little pork and it’s something most people love.
Hormel Cure 81 Ham is a spiral sliced, bone in smoked ham that comes fully cooked. As a fan of smoked meat, I can attest this Cherrywood Smoked Ham had an incredible smoked flavor that everyone enjoyed. Since it comes fully cooked, heating and glazing is all you need to do to add this lovely ham to your holiday spread.
Seeing that making the ham isn’t much work, you will have a few more minutes to dedicate to the sides. I love serving ham with Perfect Potatoes Au Gratin, Carrot Souffle and Stuffing. *Tip for reheating* – save some of the liquid from the bottom of the pan to store with any leftover ham, after chilling this liquid will become gelatinous. To reheat – place ham and gelatinous pan liquid in a covered saucepan or baking dish and heat through. This will keep the meat from drying out when reheating 😉
