In many homes, it is an Easter tradition to serve a Honey Baked Ham with that iconic crispy crust just begging to be chipped from the tender, juicy ham and enjoyed when no one is looking. In our house, it wouldn't be Easter without it, but I really don't like shelling out the big bucks for those fancy hams, so I save my hard earned dollars and make my own at home for a fraction of the cost!

This recipe is so easy y'all! It starts with a fully cooked, spiral sliced ham which means you won't have to get up early and spend all day cooking (or stand in line, for that matter). This frees up more time to enjoy the holiday with the fam! I like that! You'll only need about an hour and a half total for this recipe. Not bad for an impressive holiday meal!

Because the ham is fully cooked, we need to heat it through without drying it out. Preheat the oven to 325°F. Line a baking sheet with heavy duty foil and place an oven-safe rack on top of the foil in the baking sheet. Place a 10 lb honey cured, spiral sliced, fully cooked bone-in ham, cut side down, on the rack.

Cover the ham with heavy duty foil, being sure to wrap the foil around the edges of the baking sheet to cover the ham completely, and place the baking sheet in the preheated oven for 1 hour.

While the ham is baking, prepare the glaze in a saucepan set over medium heat. Combine 1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick) with 1 cup honey,

1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/8 cup Holland House Red Cooking Wine, and 1/2 tablespoon freshly cracked black pepper. Stir well to combine and continue to cook over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture thickens into a glaze. About 7-10 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.

After an hour in the oven, remove the ham and turn the ham so it is on the oven rack on its side to open up the spirals. Be careful, it's hot. With the spiral slices separated, pour the prepared glaze all over the ham. Some of the glaze will drip down into the pan and that's a good thing! It will mix with the ham juices to create the amazing gravy that will make you wish it was socially acceptable to drink it through a straw!

Place the glazed ham back in the oven, uncovered, for another 30-45 minutes until it is heated through and the glaze has crisped up nicely on the outside.

Remove the ham from the oven when it is thoroughly heated and the glaze is slightly crispy on the spiral edges. Place the ham on a serving platter and pour the pan drippings into a 4 cup fat separator. Pour the gravy into a serving dish, leaving the fat behind. If you don't own a fat separator, allow the fat to rise to the top and skim it off, then pour into a dish to serve with the ham.

I absolutely LOVE the addition of the Holland House Red Cooking Wine in the glaze! As I found in my Slow Cooker Red Wine Short Ribs, the wine enhances the flavor of the glaze with a richness you won't find in other recipes. It adds a touch of tang to the sweet ham glaze making for an absolutely wonderful taste experience! Don't be surprised if you find yourself raiding the leftovers for just another taste!
