Recipe: Honey Glazed Ham with Oregano Roasted Root Vegetables

Dan Clapson - Tuesday, October 23, 2012

This past weekend, I realized how long it had been since I’ve had a simple glazed ham for dinner. Hot or cold, ham was always one of my favourite things to east growing up. Cubing it and tossing it into a simple ham and cheddar omelette, split pea and ham soup, homemade cobb salads, the list goes on…

When it gets colder outside, it’s always nice to whip up a hot, comforting meal and a nice, roasted ham always fits the bill. This recipe is uber simple. No frills, just a delicious meal on the table in under 45 minutes. Any leftovers are always great in-between some slices of bread with a generous amount of dijon mustard! Yum!

Honey Glazed Ham with Oregano Roasted Root Vegetables

What you’ll need…

Root Vegetables

2 white potatoes (1″ cubed, approximately 2 cups)

1 medium-sized yam (1″ cubed, approximately 2 cups)

3 TBSP fresh oregano

1 TBSP olive oil

salt and pepper

Glazed Ham

2 lbs ham (1/2″ sliced)

1/4 cup honey

1 TBSP grainy dijon mustard

2 TSP ground black pepper


Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Place the cubed root vegetables, oregano and olive oil in a medium-sized mixing bowl and toss until evenly coated. Lay out evenly in a large, prepared baking dish and season liberally with salt and pepper.

On top of the root vegetables, layer the sliced ham in the middle of the baking dish. In a small bowl, whisk together the honey, mustard, pepper and drizzle over ham.

Let roast in the oven, uncovered, until the root vegetables are fork tender, about 40-45 minutes. Let cool slightly before serving. Portion out the sliced ham onto plates and stir the vegetables in the baking dish before scooping out to coat in the roasting juice from the glazed ham. Enjoy!
