Glazed ham is a holiday must-have. Christmas or holiday dinner is incomplete without ham. It’s a good old tradition that everyone loves. Who doesn’t love sweet and sticky ham with a honey glaze?
How Do You Glaze Ham?
It’s very easy and quick to glaze a pre-cooked ham bought from the food store and supermarket. First of all, you need to make a glaze. There are all kinds of glaze, but sweet tasting glaze works the best, for example: honey.
Without a glaze, pre-cooked ham can be pretty boring and tasteless. The honey glaze makes the ham extremely delicious and the centerpiece of holiday dinner.
This spicy honey glazed ham recipe is an absolute must-try if you are serving ham. The sticky sweet honey glaze is to die for, it’s so good that I am now using the glaze for all kinds of recipes.
How Do You Make the Honey Glaze?
The spicy honey glaze is made with honey, with a little heat (mild but enough to tingle the palate), with dijon mustard and grainy mustard. Mix all the ingredients together and brush the glaze on the pre-cooked ham.
Every bite of the ham is bursting with amazing flavor due to the interplay of the sweet honey and the smokey and savory ham. Every bite also comes with a poppy sensation as you bite into the tiny mustard seeds.
Jazz up your holiday this year with this glazed ham recipe, I assure you that everyone would love the holiday ham!
