Citrus Glazed Ham

Pin It We were given some leftover spiral sliced ham.  I have never been a fan of ham and scalloped potatoes and we just couldn't eat any more ham sandwiches so I had to get creative.  Let's face it, leftover ham can be dry and tough.  This glaze will give you that juicy, just baked taste that you crave.  It is also a great weeknight 30-minute dinner.  I will definitely be using this again when I make a big ham.  Your ham does not have to be leftover for this recipe to work.  You could use this glaze on any ham, ours just happened to be leftovers.
Citrus Glazed Ham
Leftover sliced ham (I had about 8 slices)
juice and zest of 2 oranges
2 Tbsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp honey
1/4 cup pineapple juice
1 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp garlic
salt and pepper to taste

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2. In a shallow baking dish mix all ingredients except ham together until sugar is dissolved and honey is well incorporated.  Adjust salt and pepper to your liking.
3. Arrange ham in dish, flipping to coat well in glaze.  It is ok if the slices overlap.
4. Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes or until heated through.
