Bacon-Glazed Spiral Ham

Looking for a way to make your holiday extra special with something a little unexpected on the table? Just add bacon! CB Old Country Store® Hardwood Smoked Bacon to be exact. How else could you make our Spiral Sliced Ham even better? This recipe brings together ingredients like apple jelly, honey, Dijon mustard, and bacon to take our ham to a whole new level of flavor.


1 CB Old Country Store® spiral cut, bone-in half ham, 7 to 10 pounds

1/2 cup apple jelly

2 tablespoons honey

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

1 tablespoon stoneground mustard

8 slices CB Old Country Store® Hardwood Smoked Bacon, uncooked


Heat oven to 325o F. Place ham, cut side down in a foil-lined shallow baking pan. Bake on lowest oven rack for 10 minutes per pound.

Meanwhile, cook bacon in a skillet. Remove bacon from pan and set aside. Discard grease from pan, keeping any loose bacon bits in the pan for deglazing. Place pan on medium heat and add apple jelly.  Whisk in honey and mustards, scraping the bottom of the pan to remove all the bacon bits. Remove from heat; let stand.

When ham has 30 minutes left to cook, remove from oven and pour off any liquid from pan. Cut bacon into small pieces and stir into cooled glaze. Spread glaze over top and sides of ham; continue baking 30 minutes or until glazed and bacon is deep golden brown. Spoon any remaining glaze from pan over ham before serving.
