Whether you’re cooking for a Holiday Dinner or just looking to make a delicious meal for your family, baking a LGCM Ham is a great idea. We sugar cure our hams and smoke them with a special hardwood blend smoke in our own smokehouses. All you have to do is heat your ham up in your oven, slice and enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 LGCM Ham (either boneless or bone-in)
  • Glaze (if desired)

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 325°F.

  2. If you are going to put a glaze on your ham, score the surface of your ham by cutting 1″ deep diagonal cuts into the ham in a diamond check pattern.

  3. Place your LGCM Ham on a rack in a shallow roasting pan and cover the pan with tin foil.

  4. Bake for 10-12 minutes per pound (check the label, the weight will be on it) or until the internal temperature reaches 130°F.

  5. If desired, for the last 30 minutes of cooking, you can raise the temperature of the oven to 425°, and pour your favorite glaze over the ham. Finish baking uncovered.

  6. Remove the ham from the oven, and let rest for 15 minutes before slicing.
