Traditionally, folks love to make a glazed ham for Easter Sunday. It’s easy, delicious, and feeds a crowd on a budget. There are 3 ham recipes that are my personal favorites that you might like to try this spring. None are time consuming and all are tender and moist. And if you scroll to the bottom, you’ll see lots of other Easter side dishes and desserts that will help you plan the perfect celebration for your guests. Look and see which one might be your favorite:
This ham looks like a professional made it but it’s difficulty level is for amateurs! The glaze is Coke based but you can also use Dr. Pepper. There are simple instructions for how to cut the diamond pattern on the ham that will make for a beautiful centerpiece on your Easter Sunday table.
Don’t let these fancy ingredients intimidate you! Prosecco and pineapple make a delicious glaze that infuses flavor all throughout the meat. You can find Prosecco near the champagne in the wine section of your grocery store. Don’t like to cook with alcohol? No problem, use Sprite instead! Included in this recipe are the instructions on how to slow cook a ham so the meat stays tender and moist. You’ll just need a timer, basting brush, and meat thermometer.
This ham may look like a sorting hat, but there is no magic needed to make it! The coffee and red pepper jelly seem like odd ingredients to combine for a glazed ham, but I assure you that they balance perfectly! The acid in the coffee tenderizes the meat making it fall right off the bone! The ham leftovers are finger-licking good and perfect for soups, sandwiches, and salads. Simply garnish the Easter ham with some parsley and oranges and you’ll have the perfect holiday centerpiece!

Both can be prepared ahead to save you time in the kitchen on the big day. Check out all 13 Foolproof Recipes here!
