Orange and Mustard Glazed Ham is an easy and flavorful main dish perfect for any holiday meal! Just mix together the orange marmalade, Dijon mustard, brown sugar, orange zest and orange juice in a small bowl, and toss over a good quality spiral cut ham. Next, warm it in the oven and you’ll have the tasty star of your meal!
Orange and Mustard Glazed Ham is not too Sweet
I like this Ham because it isn’t too sweet. The glaze that typically comes with the ham is full of sugar. (I never use them!) This glaze only has 1/2 cup of brown sugar. If you really want to cut the sugar, you can replace it with Brown Sugar Swerve. It is an excellent alternative that I use quite regularly since it doesn’t leave an impact on the glycemic index. The Dijon mustard and the orange flavors add a nice acidic balance to the glaze.
Use a Good Spiral Cut Ham
I find that it is worth spending a little more money for a good bone in, spiral cut ham. You can use an unsliced shank ham if you chose, but I like to put the glaze in between the slices of meat before warming it through. I think it adds more flavor throughout the ham, not just on the outside of it. Plus, the spiral sliced hams are so easy to serve. I always save the ham bone to use for soup. If you don’t have time to make soup right away, you can always freeze it for later use.
Last Easter, I served this Orange and Mustard Glazed Ham with Herbed Green Beans, Southern Style Biscuits and Creamy Lemon Cheesecake Bites. Not only was it a hit, but I didn’t have to spend days in the kitchen preparing the meal. Of course, there was leftover ham which made the best sandwiches!
