Easter is coming up fast, and this Root Beer Glazed Spiral Ham would be fantastic for your Holiday dinner or brunch. Brushed with a tangy, sweet and sticky glaze then baked until caramelized perfection. This Holiday ham is bursting with flavor, and will be sure to please your dinner guests.
Easter dinner is always hosted at my house every year, and this ham recipe is always a favorite. A big baked ham is one of the easiest things to make for your Holiday main course. This recipe is super simple, since the ham is already cooked all your really doing is reheating it, while brushing over the AH-Mazing root beer glaze.

Usually during Easter time I purchase an extra ham or two when they are much cheaper. I bake it and separate it into Ziplock freezer bags and freeze it for later meals. It’s great for soups, casseroles, sandwiches or just with breakfast.
- 10-12 lb fully cooked bone-in spiral ham
- 2 cups brown sugar
- ½ cup mustard
- 1 can root beer
- 3 tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar
- Preheat oven to 325
- Place ham in roasting pan and cover with foil. Bake 2-2½ hours
- In a small saucepan on medium low. Add the sugar, mustard, root beer and vinegar whisk until combined. Reduce heat to low, and simmer uncovered until reduced and thickened into a glaze, about 20-30 minutes
- After about 1½ hours of baking time remove the ham and brush on some glaze. Place ham back into the oven uncovered. Repeat glazing every 15-20 minutes until ham is done.
- Let rest 15 minutes before serving
