This is Ham in a Crock Pot!
We all know how easy it is to make a Ham. Most Hams are already cooked, so an hour or so in the oven and Ham is ready to be served.
However, a Ham can dry out very easily.
This is a recipe I had seen a couple times, but wasn’t so sure it would work or at least with good results.
It involves a crock pot or slow cooker.
This is a good thing because the crock pot gently heats the Ham without drying it out.
Make the quick and easy maple brown sugar glaze and after a few minutes under the broiler, the glaze caramelizes giving the Ham a delicious crunch.
And the leftovers (if there are any) are so good the next day!
I just love Ham Sandwiches!
And Ham and Cheese Sandwiches!
Ham is a good thing to like!
