Baked Ham with Brown Sugar Glaze

This baked ham was liked by all at our Christmas dinner and the leftover bones inside make a delicious ham bean soup the next day! I like the 15 bean mix to add in with the soup bone.) With a $30 holiday  fully cooked ham, you can serve a holiday meal, plus have leftovers, plus make a whole another meal for 7 people with the soup!


  • 1 spiral cut ham with bone-in approx 7-9 pounds (I used a 10 lb. ham for 7 adults and 6 kids and it was plenty). I get my ham at Costco and it is already fully cooked.  You are just heating it up in the oven.
  • 2 tablespoons dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup pineapple juice or orange juice (I used freshly juiced oranges)
Brown Sugar Glaze (this is much better when you make your own glaze instead of the little packet thingy that comes with the ham)
  • ½ cup pineapple juice or orange juice
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons dijon mustard
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch




  • Preheat oven to 325°F.
  • Combine dijon mustard and pineapple juice. Brush over ham.
  • Place in a roasting pan and cover tightly with foil. Roast 12-15 minutes per pound (or according to package directions). My ham was  plenty done in 2 1/2 hours) Next time I will try 2 1/4 hours for a10 lb. ham.
  • Meanwhile, combine glaze ingredients and bring to a boil. Turn heat down and simmer 2-3 minutes. Cool.
  • 15 minutes before ham is done, remove from the oven and turn the oven up to 425°F.
  • Brush with glaze and return to the oven until the glaze is caramelized and the ham has reached the safe cook temperature.
