We are on day 6 of 24 Days of Christmas, and while it has been all sweets going on so far, there is something else that we have to get to before Christmas arrives.

Christmas dinner.

We tend to stick to tradition when it comes to the holidays. It’s always turkey on Thanksgiving and ham on Christmas. And I like that tradition. And while I do like turkey, I definitely look forward to the ham at Christmas more than I look forward to the turkey at Thanksgiving. I’m a pork-loving girl – that’s for sure!!

But just like Thanksgiving, I’m not usually the one to make the centerpiece of the holiday meal. We are usually with family, and I have one sister who is usually in charge of the turkey, and another sister who is usually in charge of the ham.

A few years back, my sister made a ham with a root beer glaze, and I’ve been dying to try something similar ever since. This is so insanely easy and delicious – you are going to be cooking up a ham a lot more often than just for Christmas or Easter!! A simple glaze is made and reduced, and then all you have to do is baste the ham with the sticky, sweet mixture. If you think the thought of root beer and ham don’t go together, let me prove you wrong!

Root Beer Glazed Ham

A sweet brown sugar and root beer glaze is baked over a boneless ham for an easy main dish.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Combine the root beer, brown sugar, ketchup and mustard in a pan and cook over medium heat until reduced to half.
  2. Preheat the oven to 325°F. If desired, score the fat layer on the ham. Place the ham in a baking dish and baste with one-fourth of the reduced root beer mixture. Cover with foil and place in the oven. Bake for 15 minutes, then baste with another fourth of the root beer mixture. Repeat two more times. Remove the foil, baste the ham with the pan juices and cook for an additional 20-30 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 145°F.

    My family often does lasagna or ravioli AND ham…so usually the ham gets pushed to the wayside since everyone has filled up on pasta! Maybe if it’s covered in this glaze people will actually save room for it!

  2. We’ve done Coke glaze but never Root Beer- great idea!

    That looks fabulous. My dad always sends us a Honeybaked Ham for Christmas and it is so good with so many things.
