Stuffed Easter Ham

I traditionally serve this special ham on Easter. But it's so delicious that my family often requests it for a number of holidays throughout the year. I think you'll enjoy it, too.
  • Total Time
    Prep: 15 min. Bake: 2 hours
  • Makes
    8-10 servings


  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 3 tablespoons chopped celery
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2-3/4 cups cubed French bread (1/4-inch cubes)
  • 1 cup chopped tart apple
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 3 tablespoons raisins
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 fully cooked ham (3 pounds), cut into 3/8-inch slices
  • 1/2 cup pineapple preserves, melted


  • In a skillet, saute onion and celery in butter until tender; add the next six ingredients and mix well. Line an 11x7-in. baking pan with foil; place string for tying on foil. Place one ham slice on top of string; spread with 1 cup of stuffing. Top with another ham slice. Repeat the process, using two ham slices between stuffing layers. Tie securely with string. Cover loosely with foil.
  • Bake at 350° for 1-1/4 hours. Baste ham with preserves; bake, uncovered, basting several times, for 45 minutes or until a thermometer inserted into the stuffing in the center of ham reads 140°. Let stand 10 minutes. Remove the string and separate the double ham slices; cut into desired portions.
