Brown Sugar and Mustard Glazed Ham

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour 20 minutes
Servings 8


  • 6 pound ham
  • 1 cup brown sugar - firmly packed
  • 1/2 cup Dijon mustard
  • 6 Pineapple slices
  • 6 Whole cloves
  • 6 Maraschino cherries - optional
  • Plain wooden toothpicks - (optional)
  • 6 ounces Coke
  • Heavy-duty foil


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Line a roasting pan with a piece or two of heavy-duty aluminum foil large enough to wrap the ham in.
  • If you want, you can score the ham into a crosshatch pattern and stud the intersections of the crosshatches with whole cloves.
  • Mix 1 cup of the brown sugar and mustard together to form a thick paste and smear it all over the ham.
  • Add pineapple slices to the ham and using a toothpick, decorate the center of the pineapples with a cherry.
  • Pour the coke carefully over and around the ham, pull the foil up loosely around the ham and bring it together. 
  • Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes per pound, or until the center of the ham reaches 140 degrees on an instant read thermometer, basting occasionally.
  • You can unwrap the ham and place it under the broiler to brown for a few minutes if you want.
  • Slice ham and serve with the pan sauce.

    Jason, made this glaze for our Easter ham. I did not have Coke, so I just used 1/2 cup of the pineapple juice in the glaze. The family loved it. I will definitely make it this way again.
