Creole Pecan Glazed Ham

Prep Time: 20 mins Cook Time: 2 hrs Servings: 8 to 10


1 (10- to 12-pound) spiral-sliced smoked ham

1 cup water

1/2 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar

1/2 cup stone-ground mustard

1/3 cup honey

1 tablespoon Creole seasoning

1 cup chopped pecans


Heat oven to 275 F and remove packaging from the ham. Place ham on a rack in a roasting pan with the flat side down. Pour water into the bottom of the pan. Cover tightly with aluminum foil and bake 12 to 15 minutes per pound.

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine brown sugar, mustard, honey and Creole seasoning. Bring to a simmer and cook about 2 minutes, stirring frequently.  Remove from heat and stir in the pecans.

Remove ham from the oven and remove the foil. Carefully turn ham on its side and pour glaze over ham. Return ham to the oven about 10 minutes or until the glaze is bubbly.
