Honey Glazed Baked Ham


Honey-glazed ham is a classic, but this recipe has a secret ingredient you won't want to leave out!


  • 1 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter (melted)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 16 1/2 pounds spiral-sliced bone-in ham


  1. Preheat the oven to 325° 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. Place the honey in a microwave-safe mixing bowl. Microwave on high for 20-25 seconds, until liquified. Add the melted butter and cayenne to the bowl. Whisk vigorously until smooth and combined.
  4. Brush the ham with a thick layer of the honey butter.
  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. Every 15 minutes, open the oven door and baste the ham with additional honey butter.
  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.
