Cracklin’ Brown Sugar Ham

Cracklin' Brown Sugar Ham

The Aroma Turbo Oven quickly earned a permanent spot on my kitchen counter top. I literally use it every day for things like heating up food, making toast, or whipping up an easy batch of baked fries. Actually, I don’t think my oven door has been opened since it came home. And with 2 new models set to come out this year, I might be having a little too much fun taking them for a spin in the Aroma Test Kitchen. I’m very excited to start sharing the recipes with you and taking requests on what you’d like to see made in these revolutionary ovens.

I’m a huge fan of ham and don’t limit its appearance to holidays. With all the great sales in full swing this week I couldn’t resist a weeknight ham feast. With the turbo oven, not only is cooking things like ham no longer a production but you can do amazing things like get that crispy, sugary crust everyone loves without much effort at all! So, there you have it, give your oven a break and you just might never hang with it again 🙂

1 (2-3 lb) fully cooked spiral sliced ham
1/2 cup brown sugar, divided
1/4 cup honey
2 tbsp mustard

Combine 1/4 cup brown sugar, honey and mustard together in a small bowl. Place ham on lower rack and cover with half of the basting mixture. Tent ham with foil and bake at 350º F for 20 minutes.

Baste with remaining mixture and cook for an additional 10 minutes. Carefully remove foil and cover ham with remaining 1/4 cup brown sugar, pressing it firmly into the meat. Bake uncovered for 5-10 minutes until sugar melts.

Tip: Spoon extra basting liquid from the bottom on the glass cooking bowl on top of the brown sugar coating before baking to speed up cooking time.
