Homemade Honey Baked Ham

We love this Homemade Honey Baked Ham. If you are looking for a copycat recipe for Honey Baked Ham this, is it! My son loves Honey Baked Ham, but the closed location is 50 minutes away. I have used a lot of recipes in the past and then created my own. This is the closest one that comes to the real thing.

He not only loved it, but he also actually took the leftover ham container with him to his bedroom so that no one would eat the leftovers. So, I call that a mom win!

This is the perfect recipe for Easter, Thanksgiving or Christmas. Actually, any holiday or special occasion. I hope you enjoy this Homemade Honey Baked Ham as much as we do! I served it for Thanksgiving this year and everyone requested it again for Christmas.

Prep Time:5 mins
Cook Time:2 hrs 5 mins


  • 1 Electric Roasting Pan
  • 1 Cookie Sheet or Roasting Pan


  • 1 8 lb bone-in spiral sliced half ham, any brand (I prefer Trader Joe)
  • 8 TBSP butter, softened (I prefer Kerrygold) - unsalted is preferred when I have it.
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 3/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 TBSP old bay seasoning
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp ground sea salt


  • Combine softened butter and honey whip until no longer separated. I prefer my butter is not melted as it is easier to apply to the ham.
  • Open ham and pat dry with paper towels.
  • Rub the honey butter over ham and in between some of the slices.  Place into an electric roasting pan (or your oven) and cook on 325 for 2 hours (15 minutes per pound). Be sure to cover if it is in the oven with an aluminum foil tent.
  • Combine sugar and spices in a small bowl.
  • After the ham is done carefully remove from the electric roaster and transfer to a roasting pan covered with foil or use a disposable roasting pan.
  • Using a spoon place half of the sugar mixture all over the top of the ham.
  • Broil for several minutes, until the sugar mixture is bubbly and caramelized, then remove from oven.
  • While the ham is broiling, in a small saucepan, add the remaining sugar mixture and add 1/2 cup of pineapple juice.
  • Bring to a boil while stirring continuously. Boil for 2 minutes, then remove from heat.
  • Using a spoon pour the glaze over the ham, then broil again for up two minutes. Do not let it burn but my family enjoyed a slight dark caramelization. That is up to your desire.
  • Remove from oven and let ham rest for a few minutes and then serve warm.
