Our Lil Ol Family Ham

For Thanksgiving we had an amazing Apple Cider Brined Turkey with a Lemon Saged Butter Rub. For Christmas: Our Family Ham Recipe. We’ve done for some years now. Combining an old favorite with anew, making it even better! Making it our Keeper for Christmas!

About 10 lb. Ham (Bought a Pig, came with a Smoked Ham)

Glaze:
1/2c Light Brown Sugar
1/3c Yellow Mustard
2T Butter, softened
1T Lemon Juice (Concentrate kind)
1tsp White Vinegar
1/2T Worcestershire
1/4tsp Mustard Powder
1/4-1/2tsp Fresh Cracked Pepper
1/8tsp Ginger Powder/Season
Optional: 2tsp Fresh Garlic, minced (I skipped this yr. Was Great!)

Pineapple Rings, drained
Smoked Ham, scored

Butter Pan, add in grate. Add:
3c Baby Carrots, halved
2c Onions
2c Celery
3-4c Fingerling Potatoes, halved or 1/3’d

Add Vegis to Pan. Add in Grate. Mix Ham Glaze. Score Ham (Slight cut lines into). Lightly brush Ham with Glaze, getting in scored areas. (I brush on Glaze 3 times during cooking).
With Toothpicks, secure Pineapple Rings around Ham (Added either at beginning, or half way through). Add to Pan. Cook according to directions (15-20minutes per pound, I believe).
Served with tTt’s Mashed Taters, Buns, Chicken Stuffing cooked in Vegi/Chicken Broth with Onions and Celery, Canned Cranberry Sauce (Great with Stuffing!), and Vegis from the Pan that the Ham was cooked. Mmm Mmmm Mmmmmmmm…

Note: A lot of people score and add Glaze last hour, I just do it at beginning. Your option.

Simple Crock Pot Ham and Vegis

Now, this is probably a given, with doing for years. (One of the many ways to eat Ham, the simplest, too!) Long lines of others who have done this. But, will throw it on here… Well… Just because!
We love having our Loaded Salad nights. For the Ham, we cook in Crock, with Vegis. Then, kiddos eat Ham and Vegis that night. Leftover Vegis make for great side dishes, upcoming dinners. And, Ham, gets cut up, and placed in fridge for our Salads! Or, Sandwiches or Dishes.

Large Ham Cut
1/3c Water
Few good splashes of Worcestershire
A good shake of Mustard Powder
2c Potatoes, or so
1-2c Onions, or so
1c Celery, or so
2c Carrots, sliced, or so
Optional: Mushrooms, Cabbage, I’ve even amped with 1/2can DRAINED Sauerkraut!, Green Beans, Canned Beans (Drained), endless options…

Butter Flavor Cooking Spray Crock. Cover and cook on Low all day. Serve up. Or, separate and eat vegis as side dish for dinners. And, cut up Ham for Salads, Sandwiches, etc.

2c Uncooked Noodles of choice (I would’ve used Bow Tie, only had Mostaccioli)

1c uncooked Chicken Breasts, cubed largish
1c Ham Steak, diced (Mine was uncooked)
1/2c Lawry’s Hawaiian Marinade

1/2c canned Crushed Pineapple (In juice), slight drain
1/8-1/4tsp Sea Salt
1/4tsp Paprika
1/4tsp Lemon Juice (Fridge Concentrate Kind)

Topping: Shredded Cheddar Cheese

Marinade Chicken and Ham for about 5 hours. Heat skillet with Coconut Oil. Add in marinaded Chicken and Ham. Cook til done. Set aside. Allow to cool.
Mix Sauce ingredients. Set in fridge, til use.
Boil Noodles (Noodle tip: Add in a LIL Oil and a pinch of salt while boiling. Helps noodles sticking.). I drain and rinse in cold water. DRAIN WELL!!!
Chop up Red Pepper, Green Pepper, and Onion.
Combine all together. Serve.
(When premaking for party… Keep in mind, noodles and chicken mix may eat up sauce. So, I always make a lil saucier. Add sauce no longer than 30 minutes prior to serving. Altering sauce amount (Like doubling) is up to your tastes.)

NOTES: I’m sure you can make a “Half the Flavor” pasta with skipping marinade… But, it’s SO TASTY with! And Cheap!

hawaiianpasta2Healthier Option: Try Yogurt or Sour Cream in place of Mayo. Try over Coleslaw instead of noodles.

Shredded Swiss Cheese
Ham Lunch Meat Slices (Thick)
