Brown Sugar Spiral Sliced Ham in the Crock Pot Recipe

Making a fully cooked ham in the slow cooker or crock pot is super easy.  Spiral sliced hams are already cooked so you do not need to cook it again, instead you are just heating the ham slices up and adding flavor.

Fixing a glazed spiral ham in the crock pot adds to the naturally saltiness of the cooked meat.  Our recipe below is an easy 3-ingredient ham recipe consisting of brown sugar, yellow mustard and ham.

Crockpot Spiral Ham with Brown Sugar

Spiral Sliced Hams are most often made during the holidays like Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas; thus getting the name “holiday” ham.  However, I like to make a big ham every couple months for many reasons.

For one, hams are totally kid-friendly.  I never hear any complaints out of my kids when I make ham.  Another added bonus is that you can get great deals on hams after the holidays.  Usually after a holiday, hams will go on sale at Aldi for $5 or $10 off the original price.  When this happens, I will pick up several.  I’ve often found spiral hams for around $7.

How long do hams last in the freezer?

If you are wondering how long Hams last in the freezer, according to the FDA, spiral cut hams will last 1 to 2 months in the freezer.

Leftover Ham Recipes

There are always leftovers after baking a ham. Score.  Leftover ham recipes are the best. I love making Ham and Beans using Randall’s, Make Ahead Ham and Cheese Quiche, 20 Minute Ham and Cheese Chowder, and Instant Pot Ham and Beans with my leftover ham.

Some of our blogging friends have some great leftover ham recipes too, including Ham and Cheese Pasta Bake from Farmwife Cooks and Crock Pot Creamy Scalloped Potatoes with Ham from Farmwife Feeds.

  2. In a bowl, mix brown sugar and yellow mustard until a paste forms.
  3. Spread the paste over the ham. Be sure to spread the slices so that the glaze drips down.
  4. Cover with crock pot lid, and cook on low for approximately 4 to 5 hours or until warmed through.

Notes About Glazed Holiday Ham in the Crock Pot:

  • I used a 8 to 10 pound fully cooked ham.
  • Spiral cut hams are precooked/ fully cooked already.
  • This is a three ingredient ham recipe.
  • You may need to trim your ham a bit to fit into the crock pot insert.
  • If you are worried about how to keep the ham from drying out, be sure to pour the ham juices into the crock pot insert from the packaging.
  • Arrange the ham so the slices are facing upward. This will allow the glaze to drip down between the slices.
  • If the lid won’t fit, you can cover tightly with aluminum foil instead.
  • For added flavor, pour the cooking juices into a saucepan and reduce. Pour it over the ham before serving
  • Once the ham is warmed completely through, you can leave the ham on the warm setting for several hours.

How Best to Transport Cooked Ham for Thanksgiving, Christmas or Easter?

Follow these easy steps to easily transport your cooked ham at the holidays.

  1. Cut the cooked ham into desired-sized pieces.
  2. Place the ham into either a 13 x 9 inch pan or a disposable pan.
  3. Pour all the pan juices from the ham over the ham to keep it from drying out.
  4. Cover tightly with foil to keep it warm and to prevent spills. Two layers of foil are even better.
  5. If you have a lid that fits the pan, go ahead and put that on too.
  6. Another great tip is to place the filled 13 x 9 inch pan in large sheet pan or jelly roll pan so that it doesn’t move around in the car during travel.
  7. If it’s a long trip where the ham gets cold, place the foil-covered dish in a 250 degree F oven to warm.
