Maple Glazed Ham
Made with the most incredible maple, brown sugar glaze. With just a few ingredients, this will be a hit with everyone!
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!
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.
