Easy Baked Ham

Glazed ham
The days are no longer getting shorter, but the weather is so dreary. Every time I look out the window I think of the song, Long December by the Counting Crows. By the end of the day (it seems like it starts getting dark at 4:00), I want a quick easy dinner. One of the easiest is baked ham steak. I used to fry them but it dried them out too much. The best side for this is mac n cheese. If you have any leftovers you can mix the  mac n cheese and ham and serve them the next day. This also good with any kind of potatoes- scalloped, tater tots, baked, or hash browns.

Baked ham
Really it is that easy.


Pineapple Ginger: Mix together: 1/4 cup (75 g) of pineapple marmalade or preserves, 1/4 teaspoon of ground ginger, and 1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard.
Brown Sugar: Mix together: 1/4 cup (55 g) of brown sugar, 2 teaspoons of Dijon mustard, and enough orange or pineapple juice to make it spreadable (a couple of teaspoons).
Mustard: Mix together: 1/4  cup (55 g) of brown sugar, 2 tablespoons of yellow mustard, and 1tablespoon of honey.
The bottom line: will I make this again? Yes. Many many times this winter. My husband has already requested another ham slice.
