Bacon-Wrapped Baked Ham


If you're looking to try something unusual with your holiday ham this year, wrap it in bacon!


  • 1 pound bacon
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup (real)
  • 16 1/2 pounds spiral-sliced bone-in ham


  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F. Adjust a rack to the lowest position in the oven.
  2. Line a roasting pan with aluminum foil and position a roasting rack inside of it. Place the ham on the middle of the roasting rack.
  3. Arrange the bacon strips in a lattice pattern over the ham, interweaving approximately 10 strips crosswise and 6 strips lengthwise. Secure the back with toothpicks.
  4. Gently brush the maple syrup over the surface of the bacon-covered ham.
  5. Transfer the ham to the lowest rack of the preheated oven.
  6. Bake the ham for 2-2.5 hours, or about 15 minutes per pound of ham, until the bacon is browned and crisp and the ham is heated through.
  7. Remove the ham from the oven. Allow the ham to cool on the roasting rack for 15 minutes.
  8. Transfer the ham to a cutting board. Carve and serve. Leftover ham may be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
