Easter Ham Recipe

Recently I came across a ham recipe which would be perfect for Easter.

Orange Glazed Ham with Sweet Potatoes
  • 8 lb ham

  • cooking spray

  • 1 cup orange marmalade

  • 4 tbsp brown sugar

  • 1 tbsp honey mustard

  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger

  • 2 cans pineapple chunks, undrained

  • 3 cans sweet potatoes in light syrup, drained

Preheat oven to 325°F. Coat a shallow roasting pan with cooking spray and put ham in pan. Cover and bake for about 2 1/2 hours (depending on the size of your ham and if your ham is precooked; you want the internal temperature of your ham to be 150°-160°F when fully cooked).

Combine marmalade, brown sugar, honey mustard and ground ginger in a small bowl. Cover ham and baste with about 1/3 of the marmalade mixture. Reserve the remaining mixture for the next step. Drain the pineapple, reserving 1/3 cup of juice. Combine pineapple, and sweet potatoes. Add the 1/3 cup of reserved pineapple juice to the remaining marmalade mixture that you reserved before. Pour marmalade mixture over sweet potatoes/pineapple mixture and toss lightly. Arrange the sweet potatoes/pineapple mixture around the ham. Bake, uncovered for an additional 30 minutes or until ham and potatoes are heated through.
