This succulent orange Dijon glazed ham is brushed with a sweet and tangy orange dijon glaze, then roasted to perfection, creating a delicious caramelized outer layer.
A big baked ham is one of the easiest things to prepare for a holiday celebration. It’s economical, even a half-ham can feed more than a dozen people with leftovers, and if you buy a ham on sale the week before the holidays, it will bring the per-person cost down even more. It’s also very easy to prepare since the ham is already fully cooked, all you have to do is heat it up to a serving temperature and apply a simple glaze. 10 minutes prep work is all you need to make this incredible ham.
Roasting ham with a sweet glaze makes for a showstopping classic. Your family and friends are sure to love the flavorful sweet and tangy glaze. I used orange dijon glaze and it turned out delicious! Do you have a favorite ham glaze? If so, please let me know about it in the comments.
Are you a turkey or ham fan on Thanksgiving? If you have a big family, you can make both! Otherwise, save this recipe for the coming Christmas holidays next month. I love to entertain and I always love to invite friends and family over for dinner for the holidays or when they visit. It is so much more fun to celebrate with more people, to play board games, to chit chat about random stuff, and to spend quality time with your loved ones and dear friends.
I got this ham (Hormel Cure 81 Bone-in Cherrywood flavor) at my local Walmart and I am so glad I did – I was pleased with the taste, quality and the ease of the preparation. The ham is very easy to prepare and serve, and it got rave reviews from my family!
Whether you are celebrating only with your family this holiday season or with friends and neighbors, this recipe is a keeper. The ham looks fantastic on every holiday table and it’s so easy to roast, saving you time to enjoy your company and spend more time with your family and friends.
You can also make your baked glazed ham look like a centerpiece on your holiday table. I arranged some salad leaves on a large plate/platter, placed the baked ham in the middle and added some fruit around it (grapes, cranberries, clementines). I am sure that your holiday table will look festive, vibrant and beautiful!
If you like this recipe, visit your local Walmart store and get a Hormel ham to impress your guests for the holidays.
