This is a classic baked ham dish perfect for any large gathering or holiday meal. It uses a moist heat cooking method for the first half of the process, followed by a blast of high heat at the end to caramelize the surface for a beautifully moist ham and flavorful ham. Plus it’s a one pot meal with roasted garlic potatoes as the perfect savory side dish.

Tip: Freeze the ham bone and small meat pieces to use for a soup dish in the future.
