Recipe Idea: Easy Baked Ham
Hi. It’s Lois at Recipe Idea Shop, telling you how to make an Easy Baked Ham. The picture above is not really a baked ham, though; I made this ham the slow cooker. We are having am Baked Turkey this year, so a good picture of Easy Baked Ham will have to wait until I make it again.
Ham has always been the meat of choice for Easter in my house. In fact, my first mother-in-law was insistent on having Easy Baked Ham every Easter, even though one of her daughters married a Muslim who could not eat pork! She was so stuck on traditions.
I really like ham, but it is not one of the healthiest meats to eat—being that it is so high in salt and fat. That’s one of the reasons we only have it once or twice a year. I love to buy a big spiral cut ham so we have plenty of leftovers to freeze. Just a little ham added to a casserole can make all the difference. And saving the bone to put in a Bean Soup can help you enjoy it even longer. I know you’re gonna wanna eat this.
BUT FIRST, DID YOU GRAB YOUR FREE COOKBOOK?
Easy Baked Ham
