A delicious caramelized glaze on our Honey Mustard Brown Sugar Ham gets extra flavor from peach fruit spread and whole grain mustard. It makes an easy, show stopping entree!
Recipe type: Entree
Cuisine: American
Serves: 20
  • 1 (8-10 pound) Fully Cooked Spiral Slice Half Ham
  • ½ cup honey
  • ½ cup whole grain mustard, dijon, or honey mustard
  • 1 cup peach fruit spread, (apricot or pineapple is good too)
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • heavy duty foil to wrap ham
  1. Begin by combining peach preserves, honey, brown sugar, and mustard, in a mixing bowl.
  2. Remove ham from packaging and discard plastic disk covering bone.
  3. With a basting brush, lift each slice of ham and brush with the sauce. Brush more sauce all over the outside of the ham too, using about half of the sauce.
  4. Place ham flat side down on a large sheet of foil. Transfer wrapped ham to large roasting pan and let stand at room temperature for ½ hour.
  5. Adjust oven rack to lowest position and heat oven to 300˚ degrees.
  6. Bake Honey Mustard Brown Sugar Ham until internal temperature registers 100˚ degrees, 1½ to 2½ hours. Loosen the foil and use an instant read thermometer to easily get a reading.
  7. Remove ham from oven and unwrap. Increase oven temperature to 425˚ degrees. Using a basting brush, paint ham with glaze.
  8. Return to oven and bake until dark brown and caramelized, about 20 minutes.
  9. Transfer ham to cutting board, loosely tent with foil, and let rest 15 minutes.
  10. Following step-by-step directions (that came with your ham), carve ham.
  11. Serve and enjoy.
Depending on the size of your ham, bake for 1-1/2 to 2-1/2 hours until internal temperature reaches 100 degrees.

Did your Spiral Sliced Ham come with Ham Glaze Mix?

Honey Mustard Brown Sugar Ham | cheerykitchen.com

I know in all the glazed ham recipes that you read it says to ditch the ham glaze mix packet that comes with your spiral-cut ham. What? Please don’t do it, cause there are so many great ways to use it.

Here are 3 quick ways!

Breakfast:  Sprinkle it on hot oatmeal and add milk, YUM!

Lunch:  Create a killer BLT, sprinkle it over bacon before cooking, add lettuce and tomato.

Dinner:  In 5, rub it on a ham slice, throw it in a flying pan with a little olive oil till it caramelizes.

Dessert:  Use it as the beginnings of a streusel topping, add butter and flour, for muffins, pies, or cakes.

      Sonnie, this recipe is so easy, and most of the time spent preparing it, is baking time. Try it and you’ll be surprised!


    Everyone who knows me knows I don’t cook. I started trying to couple of months ago, and I don’t do it often. But that doesn’t stop me from looking at food posts and sort of learning new things.

    I happen to like ham and it’s such a shame if I don’t learn how to prepare ham dishes.

    I promise to try to learn and hopefully, could prepare a dish just like this.

    • Renée

      Robert, if you can measure and mix the sauce together, (4 ingredients) and paint, just like in grade school, you can make this ham. It’s super easy. Make it look festive by putting some curly kale on your platter with your choice of veggies or fruit. I know you can do this and amaze yourself!!!! Thanks.

      Thanks so much Himanshi, I love trying new recipes. I saw a few ingredients I’m not familiar with so I’m going to have to go to work. We love kebabs!


    Easter and ham just go together. I need to get on the ball. I haven’t even thought about what food I am doing for Easter yet. This looks like a great option.

    • Renée

      Easter seems early this year, and it’s this Sunday! I agree, ham is always our choice for Easter too. Have a happy one Krystle.

    Wow looks delicious and tasty! I love honey mustard on chicken but adding it on a ham adds up a little bit of sweetness into it. Now I feel hungry after reading this post haha 🙂

    Your recipes are always so delicious! I will definitely be trying this especially when the weather gets warmer as sweeter hams are always perfect for accompanying a BBQ!
