Baked Ham with Mustard and Brown Sugar Crust Recipe-2091

Photo by: Joey DeLeo
Comments: 0


This treatment is a great way to dress up a precooked smoked ham for a holiday table.

Yield: 16 servings


  • One 4- to 5-pound boneless ham, fully cooked
  • ½ to 1 cup Dijon mustard
  • 2 cups fine dried bread crumbs
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger


1. Position the oven racks so that the top rack is 4 to 5 inches below the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to convection bake at 300°F. Coat a shallow roasting pan with nonstick cooking spray and place the ham in the pan.

2. Place the pan on the top rack and bake for 1 hour. Take the ham out of the oven and smear it with a generous coating of mustard. Mix the bread crumbs, brown sugar, and ginger together and pat a generous coating evenly over the whole ham.

3. Return the ham to the oven and bake for about 30 minutes or until thoroughly heated.

Ham with Ancho-Honey Mustard Glaze

Bake the ham for 1½ hours at 300°F, then coat with a mixture of 1 cup honey, ¼ cup Dijon mustard, and 2 teaspoons ground ancho chile powder (see page 206), and continue baking for 5 to 10 more minutes, until the glaze is shiny.
