Just 4 Ingredients!

Ham – Look for a half-ham or one large enough to fill the Crockpot without hitting the sides. Look for one that is pre-cooked and score the outside so the glaze will seep into the cuts.

Glaze – Use brown sugar, and add to it any good quality Dijon mustard and real maple syrup for the best flavor. If maple syrup is not available, honey, corn syrup, pancake syrup, or even barbecue sauce can be substituted. In a pinch – or if you prefer – use your favorite ham glaze from a jar.

Variations – Pineapple juice, or even ginger ale mixed with apricot or peach jam are other options to give salty slow cooker ham a sweet edge. Cinnamon, allspice, or a few cloves can be added to the pot for extra flavor dimensions

How to Cook Crockpot Brown Sugar Ham

  1. Place a pre-cooked ham in a crockpot and slice cross hatches through the top layer of fat.
  2. Pour over the glaze mixture.
  3. Cover and cook (per recipe below) until internal temperature reaches 140°.
  4. Allow to rest in the pot before serving.

Tips for Success

Leftover Ham

Ham will keep in the refrigerator for 3-5 days, and in the freezer for up to two months.

There are so many exciting meal possibilities for breakfast, lunch, or dinner made with leftover ham! Creamy ham and potato soup is a warming meal or side dish with crescent roll ham sandwiches.

Any kind of casserole can accommodate ham! Try this tasty hash brown breakfast casserole, this yummy pierogi casserole, or this chicken cordon bleu casserole!

Don’t forget the first meal of the day! Serve eggs with a cheesy breakfast crescent ring or a side of hash made with leftover ham.
