Disclosure: Thank you to Eco-Foil for sponsoring this Brown Sugar Glazed Ham Recipe post!

pansEco-Foil pans are made from 100% recycled Aluminum, and they are 100% recyclable! You can find Eco-Foil at major grocery chains and mass market retailers nationwide where Handi-Foil is sold. These come in a variety of shapes and sizes. It’s the ONLY pan I use to bake hams and turkeys. I also like using them for desserts during the holiday season for a couple of reasons. 1) My baking increases, and often I need to bake things back to back. There is no time to use a dish, let the item cool, find another container to store the dish in, wash the dish, dry the dish, and re-use the dish. It takes up precious time. It’s much easier to use one of these pans that I don’t need to worry about washing and reusing. 2) We attend holiday parties or send items to school. Using one of these pans means it isn’t necessary for me to worry about getting back any of my dishes or plastic storage containers. I can take the dessert in the same pan I baked it in (they have holiday prints too!), and the hostess can recycle it when it’s empty.

These are a few items I find helpful in my own kitchen when preparing this Brown Sugar and Coke Glazed Baked Ham Recipe:

  1. This sounds delish! We’ve always used Pepsi on ours but there’s so many ways you can go with this!! Thank you for sharing & it’s the most delish ham I’ve had yet!

  2. I’m not actually the biggest fan of Coke (we’re Pepsi drinkers at our house), but have found that using a couple of cans of Dr Pepper when I slow cooked pork had the best result! The meat was tender – falling apart without having to even use a fork. It tasted so good just as is I was hesitant to even put bbq sauce on it. I did put on a little, but wanted the Dr. Pepper taste to come through!

  3. I HAD to pin your Brown Sugar and Coke Glazed Ham, the Hashbrown Casserole, and the Sprite Rolls! Here’s the menu for our next Thanksgiving!
    Thank you for sharing!

  4. The Brown Sugar and Coke Glazed Baked Ham recipe looks astounding. I cannot wait to taste your special recipe. I thank you so much for the directions on this delicious treat.

  5. I really cannot wait to savour the taste of this delicious mouth watering recipe. The ingredients depict clearly how savouring the dish will be. Cant wait to try it out.

  6. This recipe sounds perfect!! I will definitely use it next time I fix Ham! Thanks for sharing…I pinned the recipe, just yesterday 🙂

  7. We are southern..I have relatives that have made their hams this way for decades! A bit sweet but good for a switch up.

  8. I really don’t like the packets of glaze that usually come with a ham. I much prefer making my own glaze. I haven’t seen this one – I’ll have to try it the next time I make a ham.

  9. I don’t much care for ham, but my family does. I usually get it already made, but this recipe makes it look really good. I am going to have to give it a try as soon as I either get a new range or figure out why the oven stopped working. I am a terrible cook, so it certainly hasn’t been from being used too much. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

  10. This sounds really good. I have used coke and mountain dew in the crockpot on meats and they come out delicious.

  11. Now this is something I can do without any hassle 🙂 I’m all for simple and easy recipes. When you make this for any type buffet or main meal, it’s great because everyone else can bring the side dishes! I also like the foil pans for making dishes that are easy clean up 🙂 Thank you for sharing and posting!

  12. Dinner looks delicious. I’ve been debating over a turkey or ham for Christmas Day… thanks to your article, the ham just won.

  13. Honestly, I’ve never baked a ham. I’ve always been intimidated by it. I’m not sure why! Your recipe seems so straightforward that I may try it for Christmas!

  14. Good Evening,
    Came across your recipe and decided to give it try tomorrow. I will let you know how it turns out. Thanks

  15. Trying this today. I always use pineapple juice and brown sugar and I used coke with ketchup for my meatloaf but trying this today. My heart dropped when you said you dumped the drippings though. I always put the drippings in a jar and freeze them or use the in a day or two with fried eggs. Whenever we have fried eggs I put a Tablespoon or two of the drippings in with each egg and my family fights over them. Those who normally don’t like eggs will eat eggs fried in ham juice. YUM!

    • Can you use cheerwine (sort of like cherry coke) instead of regular coke? Also, would it work on uncut ham? I did not get a spiral cut.

      • I tried it with Cherry Coke and it did give a nice hint of cherry flavor. It would work on uncut as well, maybe poke some holes in it, so the flavor can seep in 🙂

    • I never thought to try that, but I will the next time I make it. My crew prefers scrambled eggs, but adds all sorts of things to them, so I’ll try this and see how it goes. Thanks for the suggestion!

  16. This is how I cook mine, but I add cherries in syrup and use diet coke because it taste sweeter. I also started cooking mine in an oven bag 2 years ago, and it made it super moist and flavorful.

    • I can’t use diet products, because the artificial sweetener causes me problems with my autoimmune disease, that’s why I use coke. I did try it with cherry coke, and it was delicious as well. I made a note on my recipe card to try adding cherries too 🙂 Thanks for the suggestion!

  17. Looks like a great tasting ham and a great meal! Hope you are staying warm and cozy in this cold weather and thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
    Come Back Soon!
    Miz Helen
