Kentucky Bourbon Glazed Ham

Dana Moore AKA: Southern Gals Cook


Kentucky is known for its fine bourbon. But when you use it as a glaze for ham ..... the results are out of this world delicious. This is one of my most requested meats when catering.

How to Make Kentucky Bourbon Glazed Ham


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees

    Cut ham in half creating 2 halves. Carefully separate slices (one by one) finishing the cut
  2. Whisk together brown sugar, mustard and bourbon. Dip pieces of ham in bourbon mixture shaking off excess. You just want a very thin coating on the ham. Instead of dipping you can coat the ham with your hand.
  3. Layer ham in a roasting pan in a single layer; it’s okay if pieces overlap.
  4. Pour remaining bourbon mixture over the ham. Spritz with bourbon. Cover and bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour.

    When ham is done, remove cover and spritz with bourbon just before serving.
