Pineapple Ham

24 Sep
Perfect spiral cut ham

Just add pineapple slices and garlic cloves.

I took a risk tonight, and made something different for my kids.  I have extremely picky kids, so anything different even if it isn’t really “that” different is a challenge.  My 3-year-old has to either have peanut butter and jelly or wants chinese food, go figure!  Well since I am trying to eat healthier, I would like that to rub off on my family as well.   So, tonight for dinner I made Pineapple ham, acorn squash and steam roasted red potatoes.  The ham was a hit! The squash not so much, and the potatoes they ate without complaining.  Here is the recipe for the ham, it was really simple.

Pineapple Ham

  • 1 – 36 oz. Ham (mine was a Kentucky Legend and it was already spiral sliced, it was the only smaller ham available)
  • 2 cloves garlic thinly sliced
  • canned or fresh pineapple slices
  • 4 oz. ginger ale
  • cinnamon

Put ham in a shallow baking dish, if your ham isn’t already spiral sliced, score a diamond shape in the top of it with a knife.  Insert the thinly sliced garlic into the ham, top with pineapple slices and pour ginger ale over the top.  Sprinkle pineapple slices with cinnamon.  Bake at 325 for approximately 35 minutes, until warmed through.  Serve.  Really simple and delicious!
