Not a fan of ketchup or sugar, myself, I’m shocked that not even I can get enough of it. The flavors are tangy, sweet, smoked and salty all at the same time…such a trip for the tongue!

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 (8 pound) spiral cut bone-in cured ham
  • 1 ½ cups ketchup, or as needed
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. 2 Place the ham in a baking dish or roasting pan with the flattest side down. Cover with ketchup then use your hands to pack brown sugar into the ketchup. Cover the ham loosely with aluminum foil.
  3. 3 Bake in the preheated oven until heated through and sugar has caramelized, about 1 hour.

  1. This was a hit at Thanksgiving. It was not so very sweet like a maple glaze or traditional brown sugar glaze. It was just right for a wide range (including International) taste buds.
  2. And you are correct they did come back for more. This was easy and delicious. Thank you Kelly.
  3. I made this for a belated family Thanksgiving dinner and it was delicious! Very simple to pull together with a nice taste.
  4. For those of you who don't like ketchup or would prefer a little bit more tang this recipe works equally well using yellow mustard instead of ketchup.
  5. My husband loves ketchup so I thought I would give this a try. It was very good. Funny thing is I have tried for years to make a ham with a sticky glaze like his mother made. She would never tell me the secret. So I figured maybe this was it. Only thing is she - Read more ...
  6. I was looking for something quick and easy but tasty for cooking a ham and this sure met all my needs. My family loved it!! This is one recipe I will be making again and again.
  7. Made this for the two of us for Christmas Day on a 4 lb ham. It was quite delicious and didn't taste like ketchup but more of a tangy sweet almost BBQ type sauce. Will make again and try adding whole mustard seeds or pineapple pieces just for variety.
  8. I made this glaze for our Thanksgiving ham and there wasn't a bite left for sandwiches the next day. Thank you Kellie it was wonderful!
  9. Tastes really good! i added a bit of pineapple juice to the ketchup. I also think that scarring the ham or letting the ketchup mixture marinate would give it more taste. Besides that it was wonderful.
