Dear Crissy

Apple Butter Glazed Ham

I love fall—it’s undoubtedly my favorite season! Whenever I start to feel that seasonal shift, I find myself craving warm, hearty family meals like this easy apple butter glazed ham recipe made with Sugardale Prestige Bone-In Ham Roast. This ham is so juicy and flavorful on its own, but my simple apple butter glaze just sends it over the top.

That scrumptious ham with delicious veggies looks like it belongs on your Sunday dinner table, right? Well, this dish makes a great holiday or Sunday dinner, but it’s actually easy enough to whip up on regular weeknights too, thanks to the fact that the Sugardale ham roast comes fully cooked. You’ll just need to warm it in the oven and put together a very simple glaze to bring it all together. I served ours with steamed broccoli and roasted red potatoes, but you can use any side dishes you like to make this a complete family meal.

I like this ham because it’s center-cut, meaning it comes from the best part of the ham. It’s almost all useable meat with little to no waste. It’s so nice when you can cook a really special family meal with very little preparation, and then have plenty of ham remaining for delicious leftovers throughout the week. Compared to a beef roast, this product from Sugardale is so incredibly affordable! My husband gets a lot of miles out of one of these ham roasts, as he loves having the leftover meat on a bun as a work lunch.

Honestly, I used to reserve ham roasts for special occasions, like holidays or when I was hosting a large gathering. This ham roast from Sugardale is just the right size to make any night of the week, and trust me, it’s such a delicious, simple, and satisfying family dinner choice!

Another great thing about this ham roast is how perfect it comes out every time. You certainly don’t need to create a glaze to enjoy a flavorful, moist and juicy ham. My kids love having this ham for dinner because the flavor and texture is so incredible. This ham was naturally smoked over real hickory wood chips! I hope you and your family love this yummy apple butter glazed ham recipe as much as we do!
