MAIN Baked Ham with Pineapple Brown Sugar Glaze & Crispy Smashed Potatoes
Yield 4-6 servings
Who doesn't love a good baked ham with a crunchy sweet & salty glaze? Skip the glaze packet, watch my video and put together this glaze in 1 minute using pantry staples.
Make this for your holiday dinner or anytime! Leftover ham makes great school lunch sandwiches, is easy to freeze and the bone makes excellent split pea soup, which we will have coming up in our Meal Plans throughout the winter, so save and freeze what you can!
1 Woodstown USA spiral-sliced ham S
2 cans chopped/crushed pineapple
1 cup brown sugar
2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 tsp salt
4 Tbsp unsalted butter at room temperature
3 Yukon gold potatoes
2-4 Tbsp olive oil
2 tsp coarse salt
- Remove the ham from its packaging and preheat the oven to 350 F.
- In a glass baking dish, arrange the ham with the sliced-side up.
- In a small bowl, combine chopped pineapple, brown sugar, cider vinegar, salt and butter and mix with your fingers.
- Add mixture to the top of the ham and place in oven.
- While ham is cooking, heat a pot of water to a boil with potatoes. Cook until potatoes are soft.
- Remove potatoes, pat dry if needed and slice in half.
- Place cut-side down on a foil-lined baking sheet. Using the bottom of a heavy sauce pan (or your hands), press each half until the skin breaks and it gets sufficiently smashed.
- Drizzle with olive oil and salt and place in the oven to bake and crisp up as the ham is finishing.
- Since the ham is already cooked, you’re only waiting until the topping becomes caramelized and crunchy. The whole dinner should be ready in 30-45 minutes.
