As seen on My Recipe Magic!
Once you taste this Copy-Cat Honey Baked Ham Recipe, I promise, you will not want to pay for another expensive Honey Baked Ham again! It’s the absolute BEST!!!!!!
I’m for realz!
The ingredients for this recipe came from Copy Kat Recipes, the technique came from me.
I did not want to mess with, nor did I have a blow torch to use, like the original copy-cat recipe called for. So, I made a syrup and broiled the ham instead. I just love how it turned out.
A. maz. ing!
I know I will never pay for another Honey Baked Ham! Ever.
Copy-Cat Honey Baked Ham
1 bone-in spiral sliced pre-cooked ham (un-sliced also works)
2 cups white granulated sugar
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg (freshly ground if possible)
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground clove
1/2 teaspoon paprika
2 to 4 Tablespoons water
Score outside of ham into diamond shapes and place in crock-pot. Add about 2 cups of water to bottom of pot. Heat on high for about 3 hours until heated through.
Combine the rest of the ingredients in a sauce pan. Add enough water until you get a thick syrup (about 2 to 4 Tablespoons). Bring the syrup to a boil on the stove top. Boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat.
Remove ham from crock-pot and place in a foil lined baking pan. Baste ham with syrup. Place ham in oven and broil at 500° for 1 to 3 minutes until syrup starts to bubble. Keep an eye on the ham while it is in the oven. Do not leave ham in oven unattended as it will burn quickly! Remove ham from oven and serve.

Just look at all that crusted, sugary goodness!!! Oh my!
This is so easy, and the results are out of this world! My family could not stop talking about how good this ham was.
We spent about $15 on our large (around 8 or 9 lbs.) ham. The smallest (6 lb). ham from Honey Baked Ham is $58.95, and the largest (10 lb.) ham is $78.95. Say wha?! That is quite the mark up!
Go save yourself some moola and make your own DIY Honey Baked Ham this year.
You will probably be so excited, and will want to express your thanks by buying me expensive gifts. No need to do that!
Just, send some ham!
No really. *ahem*
