Guys, Christmas is seriously in just 1 week!

I know we say this all the time but seriously, where did all the time go? Didn’t we just celebrate Thanksgiving? I’m still working through all my leftover hambone soup by the way. It’s legit the best.

And by the time I finish this batch, I’ll have another hambone to use up with this recipe!

Glazed Ham Recipe

Now this recipe is a super easy, classic baked holiday ham with the most incredible maple, brown sugar glaze. All you need is 6 ingredients for this glaze: maple syrup, brown sugar, Dijon, orange zest, fresh rosemary and black pepper.

That’s it. It’s a super short ingredient list.

Just make sure your ham is sitting at room temperature before baking. From there, you can brush that beautiful ham with 1/4 cup of the glaze, and then you can baste that bad boy every 30 minutes, yielding that super sticky, super perfect glazy heaven.

    Very tasty! Good recipe! 

  2. Cut side down? Is that right? 

    Btw, love your recipes and your puppers. My daughter and I love the food, but the Butters & Cartman posts are just as great!

    Amazing !!

  4. Looks fantastic and super easy.  I’m not a huge fan of mustard (crazy I know). Is there anything I can substitute for it or can I leave it out?  

    By the way, I have been meaning to post and tell you I love your recipes. I have several on a regular rotation and love trying new recipes of yours as they are always delicious. Oh, and welcome to Chicago! I hope you’re surviving the cold weather. Summer makes it all worth it.  

  5. This sounds amazing, but my daughter hates the flavor of rosemary. Can I leave it out, or will that alter the flavor profile too much? Maybe just a smidgen of dried rosemary?
