Turkey is good, but ham is great.

Maple Glazed Ham

Ham is probably my favorite of all of the holiday meats. We have pretty much the same meal for Christmas and Easter dinner – ham, scalloped potatoes or funeral potatoes, vegetables, and Hawaiian sweet rolls.

Maple Glazed Ham Recipe

I make this maple glazed ham recipe the way my mom taught me to make it. Over the years, I tweaked it a little by adding maple syrup to the simple glaze for a little extra sweetness.

If you taste the glaze before you add it to the ham, you’ll notice that it’s a mix of sweet with just a little tang to it. I baste the ham every 15 minutes or so during the last half of the baking time. The juices from the ham add some needed salt to the mix, and the resulting ham is incredibly tasty.

And if you’re looking for recipes to use the leftover ham, check out slow cooker scalloped potatoes with ham and crock pot red beans and rice.
