1 Hr 35 Min

Make the holiday feel extra-special by adding a big dose of "WOW!" to your holiday ham this year. Our Brown Sugar-Glazed Ham has a caramelized crispy glaze that goes perfectly with the saltiness of the ham. This easy semi-boneless ham recipe is gourmet-store, fancy-schmancy without the costly price tag!

What You'll Need

  • 1 (5- to 6-pound) fully-cooked semi-boneless ham
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line a large roasting pan with aluminum foil. Using a sharp knife, score top of ham in a crisscross pattern. Place ham in pan.
  2. In a small saucepan over low heat, combine remaining ingredients and cook 3 to 5 minutes, or until melted and smooth. Brush 1/3 of glaze over ham.
  3. Bake 1-1/2 hours, or until a meat thermometer inserted in thickest part of ham registers 140 degrees. Baste ham with remaining glaze every 30 minutes during cooking.
  4. Remove ham from oven and let rest 15 minutes before slicing. Serve warm or cold.

I HEARD the ham was "delicious" I didn't get any. I was eaten up at the party before I got a slice!! I was very easy to prepare.

Would this work with a 5 pound canned ham?

Hi there! This recipe will work with canned ham. Happy cooking! :)

The ham was fantastic! The glaze was perfect and very tasty. Made the ham look like I was a master chef. Will be using this recipe again!

I used this recipe with a Cumberland Gap Ham from Kroger on Christmas day and it made the best ham ever. My first time cooking the ham for Christmas dinner and this turned out moist and full of flavor. It really did look like a speciality ham. We all loved it.
