Nothing compliments a honey roasted ham more than a sweet and sticky brown sugar ham glaze! You only need four ingredients for this recipe!

With the holidays always around the corner, a roasted ham with a Brown Sugar Ham Glaze Recipe over the top is the perfect main course to serve. It is so simple to throw together and only requires a handful of ingredients you probably already have on hand. I use a spiral honey roasted ham because they always go on sale and are a cinch to serve. Then I top it with this homemade glaze to really take it over the top and make it special because it is the holidays after all.

Ham Glaze Recipe

All you need are 4 ingredients and 7 minutes of your time to make this heavenly ham glaze. Gather up this very simple mixture of ingredients:

  • Maple Syrup – REAL maple syrup works best and tastes best!
  • Brown Sugar – more sweetness to add to the mix.
  • Mustard – this compliments the sweetness while bringing that signature pungent taste.
  • Garlic – minced. If you really like that garlic taste, try using roasted garlic here.

It’s all heated together until the sugar melts and then brushed over the entire ham to coat. Stick it back in the oven for the last few minutes of cooking and serve. It gets sticky and is the perfect amount of sweet to savory. Try it on your ham this Easter or Christmas and you will see just how much better it becomes.

How To Make Glaze For Ham

  2. Simmer glaze until sugar melts and becomes syrupy about 1-2 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat and glaze ham generously, being sure to separate the slices of spiral ham to get glaze into the nooks and crannies.
  4. Bake glazed ham at 425 degrees for 10 minutes or until sticky and set. Cut slices off the ham and serve warm.

Side Dishes

This is one of the easiest things you can do to any ham to elevate it and make it that much more special, especially for a Sunday supper or holiday feast.

And of course, you can’t have ham without scalloped potatoes or funeral potatoes or mashed potatoes! To each her own 😉
