Sharing is caring!

This Brown Sugar and Coke Glazed Baked Ham is perfect for Easter Brunch, Thanksgiving Dinner, Christmas Dinner, or any special occasion. It’s also great for potluck meals or dropping off when our PTO feeds the Teachers before Parent/Teacher Conference night, because it’s simple and easy to make, and goes a long way!

Brown Sugar and Coke Glazed Baked Ham

When it comes to a Thanksgiving Meal, we go big. When we lived in Oklahoma, we would invite several friends and their families to our home to enjoy the big meal with us. Some of them didn’t have family in the area, and we never wanted anyone to feel like they needed to spend the holiday alone.

In 2013, I showed you a plate highlighting the Turkey & Dressing, Hashbrown Casserole, Green Beans, and Sprite Biscuits.

This year (2014), I thought I’d share with you my recipe for Brown Sugar and Coke Glazed Baked Ham that I serve with Roasted Potatoes, Roasted Green Beans, and Angel Biscuits.

Roasted Green Beans

 

This is a super easy recipe, with only 3 ingredients (4 if you include pineapple!). My kids LOVE it. I like that it’s a stress free item to make, you can just put it in the oven and leave it alone until it’s time to serve.

Disposable aluminum pans make this a breeze, but you can also use a 9×13 cake pan for this ham and cover it with foil. After serving and putting away the leftovers, there is still pan juices, etc that I don’t want to pour down the drain. I can take the pan outside and discard the juices in a wooded area, then toss the foil and pan in our recycle bin. Clean up complete!

UPDATE: Going through the comments over the years, several readers have given some great suggestions to enhance my Brown Sugar Ham Glaze recipe, which I love and appreciate!

  • Try using cherry coke, instead of coke. I did, it was delicious.
  • Try using Dr Pepper, instead of coke.
  • Save the pan drippings in a mason jar or ice cube tray, freeze, and use when making fried or scrambled eggs, for added flavor.
  • Add Cherries with the pineapple slices or crushed pineapple.
  • I also make Brown Sugar and Coke Glazed Baked Ham for Easter Dinner, for Christmas Dinner, and other special occasions throughout the year.
