For me, baked ham just isn’t ham without the glaze. And I’m not talking about the glaze packet that comes with the ham. I’m talking about quick glazes that you can mix up in less than 5 minutes at home.
I’ve put together five simple ham glaze recipes that have 5 ingredients or less. It’s that easy! All you need to do is decide which one you’d like to try first. From everyday to exotic, there is definitely something for everyone.
I also happen to be a whole-time glazer. What is that? I like to brush on the glaze the entire time the ham is in the oven (like basting a turkey). But if that’s not for you, no worries. You can just add the glaze towards the end of the cooking time.
Here’s a quick tip: Cutting a diamond pattern into the top of the ham will ensure that the glaze gets down into it, making the meat extra flavorful. A must do!
So grab your ham and decide which glaze you’re going to try first!
