Who needs to pay for Honey Baked Ham when you can make it yourself? Plus, you can make this up to two days ahead of time and save yourself the fuss of preparing on Christmas day. Leftovers are wonderful too.

I love that this ham is made 2 days before you bake it and eat it. talk about a time saver! And yes, leftovers of this ham are the bomb!



1 (8 pound) ready-to-eat ham, pre-sliced
1/4 t. McCormick ground cloves
1/4 c. Domino brown sugar
1 c. honey
1 stick Kerrygold butter


Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Place ham in foil lined pan.

In the top half of a double boiler, heat the brown sugar, ground cloves, honey and butter. Keep glaze warm while baking ham.

Brush glaze over ham, and bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Baste ham every 10 to 15 minutes with the honey glaze. During the last 4 to 5 minutes of baking, turn on broiler to caramelize the glaze.

Remove from oven, and let sit a few minutes before serving.





Quick Tip: Serve this yummy ham with all of your favorite holiday side dishes.
