Orange & Bourbon Glazed Ham
Orange & Bourbon Glazed ham is the star of any holiday table. A perfectly baked ham with a delicious sweet, tasty glaze that also has a presentation wow factor.
If you’re feeding a crowd this Easter (or any holiday for that matter) it’s always good to plan ahead and think about your menu. We all know all the flavor comes from the glaze and for presentation purposes, I studded my ham with whole cloves.
The delicious glaze of fresh orange juice and zest, honey, brown sugar, all spice and bourbon are all cooked together in a pan until thick and syrupy. The top of the ham is scored into a decorative diamond pattern and studded with whole cloves, then baked and glazed.
If you are serving this ham to kiddies, you could give them slices of ham without any glaze as there is plenty of ham without it.
Did I mention this ham also makes great leftovers? One of my most popular recipes right now is ham and split pea soup. You can grab the recipe here.
Here are some delicious side dishes to serve with the ham. Slow cooker green beans with shallots & almonds, crockpot orange, honey & herb glazed carrots (recipe link below).

This looks and sounds amazing! I’ve been wanting to find a tasty ham glaze. I’m pretty sure this is what I’ll be serving for Easter thus year
Thank you so much Ann, I hope you enjoy the ham.
This ham looks juicy and delicious Janette! Love the flavor! Great for Easter!
Ooo… I am always a fan of cooking with spirits because it gives you a perfect excuse to have a drink while cooking 😛 Seriously, the ingredients in this recipe are totally making me drool! This would be an absolute hit for Easter and can image how fantastic the leftovers (if there are any) would be?! Mmmm…
Gosh Janette, this looks sooo good! That glaze is just incredibly shiny – very very appetizing, that’s for sure!
I certainly wouldn’t say no to this on my Easter table!
This Easter Ham looks amazing and sounds so delicious with the orange bourbon glaze. It’s a wonderful holiday dinner.
Perfect for Easter table or buffet. This is just gorgeous. No need for “honey baked” when making ham at home is so easy!
This is beautiful; it’s perfect for Easter. We always had ham at Christmas too. My mom always bought one of those expensive honey hams. Yours looks just as good, if not better than those. Thanks for the recipe!
