Orange Glazed Baked Ham

This is a wonderful recipe to make for any occasion.  Not very difficult but very tasty.  I found this recipe at the food network here, and it's from the Barefoot Contessa...she has some wonderful recipes.


  • 1 (14 to 16-pound) fully cooked, spiral-cut smoked ham on the bone *I didn't use the spiral*
  • 6 garlic cloves
  • 8 1/2 ounces orange marmalade
  • 1/2 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 orange, zested
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice *or from a carton*


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place the ham in a heavy roasting pan.
Mince the garlic in a food processor fitted with the steel blade. Add the marmalade, mustard, brown sugar, orange zest, and orange juice and process until smooth. Pour the glaze over the ham and bake for 1 hour or per instructions for the size and type of ham you are cooking., until the ham is fully heated and the glaze is well browned. Serve hot or at room temperature.I also basted mine during the cooking because I used a Bone In Butt, I did but some slits on the top so the glaze would get into the meat.    

The ham is just delicious on a sandwich especially if you put it on the Deli-Rye bread, but them would be good on any of the homemade breads.  Think I'm not totally spoiled, won't be eating any store bread anytime soon.  Try this ham for a nice Sunday dinner, then you'll have leftovers for those great sandwiches and oh yes you can make a nice casserole  of potatoes, cheese and ham.  Will try to post that one soon.  I will have to make this again so I can take pictures of the casserole dish.
Have a wonderful day and Find the Time to do the Things you Love.
