Easter Coca Cola Ham

A fully cooked ham needs to bake for 10 minutes a pound at 350F. This recipe uses a 10 pound ham, but you can use a larger or smaller one; simply adjust the baking time accordingly. Serves 12 Total Time: 2 hours 5 minutes


1 10lb spiral-cut ham

1/2 cup brown sugar 
1 can coke (not diet)
1 tablespoon Corn starch (optional)
Cooking spray 


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a large roasting pan with cooking spray and place the ham in the pan. Rub the brown sugar all over the ham, making sure to get it in between the slices.  Pour the can of Coca Cola over the ham. Cover the ham and bake for 90 minutes, basting every 30 minutes. Uncover and bake for 30 minutes more or until until ham is browned and caramelized.

Remove the ham from the pan and place on a serving platter. Spoon the glaze from the bottom of the pan over the ham. See optional step below if you prefer a thicker glaze (I recommend taking the extra 5 minutes to do this!

To thicken the glaze: pour the ham glaze from the bottom of the roasting pan into a small pot and bring to a simmer. Whisk together the cornstarch with 2 tablespoons of cold water. Pour the cornstarch mixture into the pot, whisking constantly. Bring to a boil and cook for 1 minute or until glaze is thickened. Yum Yum!
