I am totally obsessed with this Copycat Honey Baked Ham Recipe! It is so simple and yet the results are absolutely insane. No wonder people pay $75 for these! Instead of glazing and roasting, we are rubbing it with dry sugar and hitting it with a kitchen torch. The crispy edges of this ham are like candy!

I love Easter! Well, I love any holiday that calls for copious amounts of delicious food and almost too-many family members buzzing around to enjoy it. Since I was a little girl, E

aster Sunday was always special. My mother made it a point to buy me new clothes (Sunday best of course) and comb my hair a bit harder than usual.

After church service, I enjoyed the usual egg hunts and outdoor play until lunch was ready. The location of our meal rotated each year but the contents of the table stayed the same. There were Big Mama’s dinner rolls, candied sweet potatoes, collard greens and best of all, Honey Glazed Ham.


1/4 cup unsalted butter
1 cup brown sugar packed
1/2 cup honey
2 tbsp dijon mustard

1/4 cup pineapple juice
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp paprika
Cooking spray
8-10 lb Plain fully cooked spiral sliced bone in ham make sure it does not already have a glaze


In a large saucepan over medium heat, melt butter then whisk in brown sugar, honey, mustard, pineapple juice, garlic powder and paprika until combined. Allow the mixture to cook for about 5-7 minutes or until it bubbles and somewhat thickens. Take off heat.

It will continue to thicken as it stands.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Cover a 9″ x 13″ pan with lots of foil going up the sides as well then thoroughly spray with cooking spray.
Place the ham cut side down in the pan.

Next score the ham if you desire. To score, simply make shallow cuts along the top of the thicker skin to get the glaze to seep through even more.

Brush the ⅓ of the glaze over the top of the ham.
Bake for 1 ½ hours then turn oven to 425 degrees F and brush ham again with half of the remaining glaze.
Bake 15 additional minutes, then finally brush ham with remaining glaze you have. Place ham under broiler for 3-5 minutes to allow glaze to get sticky. The sugar should be super seeped in and delicious.
Rest ham for 10 minutes and then serve.
