The best thing about this recipe is that it is so tasty standalone, and can also be used for many easy leftover meals, too. Kings Hawaiian rolls, anyone? We promise this classic recipe is not as intimidating as it seems, and challenge you to give it a try. And for anyone who has ever asked, “Is Honey Baked Healthy?” we have you covered with the nutrition information. 


Honey Baked Ham


  • 1 bone-in spiral sliced ham (8-12 lbs)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ¼ cup coconut brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon cloves
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Prepare a pan large enough to hold the ham and its juices by lining it with aluminum foil.
  2. In a saucepan, prepare glaze by combining butter, apple cider vinegar, mustard, honey, coconut brown sugar, cloves and cinnamon. Heat on low until butter is melted and ingredients are combined. Keep glaze warm while baking the ham.
  3. Place ham in prepared pan and brush with glaze.
  4. Bake ham for 1-1 ½ hours (depending on the size of the ham; check ham packaging for exact cooking times). Brush on additional glaze every 15 minutes.
  5. Remove ham when it’s done baking. Let rest for 10-15 minutes before serving.
