How to make the best Easter ham glaze for a perfect Easter dinner

Here are 10 of the best, MOST SCRUMPTIOUS Easter ham glaze recipes so you will have the perfect Easter Dinner. These ham glazes are simple to make and add so much flavor to your Easter dinner menu your family and friends will want to spread it on EVERYTHING!

For a well-balanced ham glaze, you need sweetness, some acid and sometimes a bit of heat. Your glaze should be thick enough to cling to the surface of your Easter ham without sliding off into the pan. All of these recipes are no-cook glazes. Just mix them together and brush on to the ham.

Brush the glaze onto your fully cooked ham and serve or put the glazed ham under the broiler for a short time to get a little char on it. For the best results, I like to brush the ham with half of the glaze, cover the ham and bake it until it reaches 165 degrees. Then remove the foil, brush the ham with the remaining glaze and broil it for a minute or so. Watch the ham closely when it’s under the broiler because it can burn easily.

Try these glazes on pork chops, pork tenderloin, brush them onto a whole roast chicken or chicken pieces (or fried chicken OMG) and turkey.
