Blue Ribbon Recipe

Yum! This ham recipe will be delicious on your holiday table (or for any dinner, really). The ham is sweet with a very slight tang and a bite from the Dijon mustard. Once baked, it's sugary, sticky perfection. Scoring the ham allows all the yumminess to get down into the hash marks.

How To Make tasty baked ham

Test Kitchen Tips
To prevent the outside from overcooking, we covered it in foil for the last 45 minutes.
  • Preheating oven while prepping ham.
    Heat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Scoring the ham.
    Score ham with diagonal lines about 1/4 inch deep to achieve a diamond pattern. Place fat side up in a shallow roasting pan lined with aluminum foil for fast clean-up. Bake 30 minutes.
  • Brown sugar, maple syrup, and Dijon mustard mixed together.
    Combine brown sugar, syrup, and mustard.
  • Mustard mixture brushed on the ham.
    Brush mixture on ham. Return to oven and bake another 30 minutes.
  • Continuing to brush the ham with the glaze.
    Brush again with juices. Bake another 20 minutes or until 140 degrees internal temperature. Remove ham from the oven and let it rest for 20 minutes. Slice and serve.
