As I stated in an earlier post, we hosted Easter dinner this year. Part of the reason I love hosting dinners is that I have the opportunity to try out new recipes on willing and eager guests. Unfortunately I've never had much luck baking ham. It always comes away tasting weird. So I scoured the web for a delicious/easy recipe that I couldn't mess up. Luckily I found one that looked fool proof within minutes. I made a few changes based on what I had in my pantry but whether you follow my changes or the original it will not disappoint. This recipe is amazing. It's easy and delicious and will definitely be my go to recipe each Easter. Try it and I'm sure you'll say the same.
Brown Sugar Ham
1/2 liter lemon-lime soda
1 cup brown sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
Preheat oven to 400. Slice ham 1/4" diagonally one way and diagonally the other way to create
a diamond pattern. Pour about 1/2 liter of lemon lime soda over the top of the ham. Mix 1 cup
brown sugar with 2 tsp. cinnamon and cover ham with this mixture. Bake uncovered for 40
minutes and take out of oven. Pour a bit more soda over ham and cover with tinfoil.
Bake for 1 1/2 hours. Ladle the juices from the bottom of pan onto ham every 15-20 minutes
to create the best flavors. Let sit for 15 minutes before carving.
