Bourbon Baked Ham

Because of its simple ingredient list, easy preparation and unbeatable flavor, this baked ham is one you'll come to rely on often. The honey-bourbon glaze not only looks lovely, but also helps to seal in the meat's juices. —Jean Adams, Waycross, Georgia

    This recipe is AMAZING and so easy! It's been a staple in my house for years. Works with ham (spiral and regular), chicken, turkey, you name it. You can also get creative with the bourbon to kick it up a notch! Def a must try if you haven't already!

    Nice flavor. I reduced the amount of molasses, as I use full-flavor molasses and I thought it might be overpowering. I will definitely use this glaze again, next will be on a whole chicken.

    I haven't made this yet, but it sounds great. I'm wondering if this would be the same with a ham that is not spiral cut, I prefer a ham that isn't spiral cut. Let me know what you think.
