Easter Ham Recipes

Happy Easter to all! Here I am providing ham recipes for your enjoyment on your wonderful holiday. Don’t be afraid to change it up a little bit, ham can be prepared many ways so do away with the traditional way this year and invigorate your taste buds! Lets get started:

Ginger Ale-Glazed Ham

What you will need:

  • 3 to 4-pound boneless ham
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • Pinch cayenne pepper
  • 2 cups ginger ale
  • 2 tablespoons honey

Serves 8 to 10

This sweet and tangy glaze from celebrity chef Paula Deens’ sons was inspired by a cola-glaze they grew up with.

Start to finish time: 3 hours and 10 minutes (20 minutes active)

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (fahrenheit). Place ham in a roasting pan.

In a medium saucepan combine the wine, mustard, molasses, and cayenne pepper. Bring to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes. Stir in the ginger ale. Pour the glaze over the ham. Bake for 1 1/2 hours.

Increase oven temperature to 325 degrees F. Bake for another hour, basting the ham every 15 minutes.

Brush the ham with honey. Bake, basting every 15 minutes, until the ham is well glazed, about another 30 minutes. Slice and serve.
