Try this southern version of baked ham with the secret ingredient root beer for a deliciously unique twist.
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.
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.
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.
How long is cooked ham good for?
It can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 1 week or frozen for up to four months. When I freeze I pour in all the extra juices and glaze. I always make my Scalloped Potatoes with Ham a few weeks after Easter.
