The Best Ham with Pineapple & Brown Sugar Recipe. Glaze made with brown sugar, mustard, pineapple juice and more!
My holiday is incomplete if I don’t have a pineapple ham on the table! I seriously believe everyone should have at least one pineapple ham recipe in the recipe collection. So in this post, I’m going to share my ham with pineapple and brown sugar recipe!
The glaze for this ham has all of your favorite ingredients such as honey, pineapple juice, brown sugar, and even a combination of your delicious holiday spices.
I literally combined all of my ham recipes into one, and made the perfect homemade sauce/glaze. This ham with pineapple and brown sugar is now my go to ham recipe during the holidays… The best part? It’s so freaking easy to make. The hardest part ( which isn’t hard at all!) is decorating the ham with pineapples and cherries.
Pin this recipe for later!
