Praline Glazed Ham


  • 1 large ham, bone-in (I use spiral cut)
  • 3/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper


  • Heat oven to 275 degrees. 
  • Wrap ham completely in heavy duty aluminum foil and place in a roasting pan.
  • If ham is not sliced, use a knife to cut a crosshatch pattern, only going about 1/4-inch deep. This will help keep the glaze on the ham. 
  • Bake for about 2 1/2 hours. The ham is already fully cooked, but you want it to reach an internal temperature of 120 degrees.
  • Combine all ingredients for glaze in a medium bowl and mix well.
  • Remove ham from oven and raise oven temp to 400 degrees.
  • Brush glaze all over ham, being sure to get a little between the slices.
  • Place ham back in oven for 10 minutes. You can keep it loosely wrapped in foil or pull the foil down and away from the ham.
  • Remove ham from oven, baste again and place ham under broiler for a few minutes to get glaze golden brown.
