Easter Dinner Ideas

Glazed Easter Ham


  • 1 whole fully cooked bone-in ham (15 to 18 pounds)
  • whole cloves
  • 3 c. brown sugar
  • 1/2 c. spicy brown mustard
  • 1 can Dr Pepper or Coke
  • 3 tbsp. apple cider vinegar

Steps to make it:

  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F.
  2. Score the surface of the ham in a diamond pattern about 1/8-inch deep. Place cloves in the middle of each diamond. Place the ham in a large roasting pan with a rack, tent it with foil, and bake for 2 to 2 1/2 hours—or longer, depending on the package directions. (Some hams may require 3 to 3 1/2 hours at a lower temperature; just check the package.)
  3. In a small saucepan, heat the brown sugar, mustard, vinegar, and soda until bubbly. Cook until reduced and a bit thicker, about 15 minutes.
  4. After about 2 hours of baking time, remove the foil and brush the glaze on the ham in 20 minutes intervals (put the ham back in the oven, uncovered, in between) until it’s nice and glossy. Remove from the oven and allow to rest 15 to 20 minutes before carving.

  6. Place a half of the sliced potatoes in a lightly greased 1.5 quart casserole dish (8×8 or 9×9 will work)
  7. Pour half of cheese sauce over potatoes.
  8. Repeat with second layer of potatoes and cheese sauce.
  9. Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese on top.
