Easter is just a few days away and that means that I’ll get to indulge in some Coca-Cola Glazed Ham. It is so succulent and juicy that I could probably eat it everyday.
The glaze is a fantastic compliment to the ham. Just a few ingredients and almost no real effort and you will have a very impressive meal on the table. I cannot imagine using the package of glaze that comes with ham from the store ever again!
Pin it to your favorite food board and SAVE it for later!

I’ve made this with the fruit being oranges or pineapples many times and both fruits are equally complimentary to the ham. I have also tried different colas in this recipe, but I always go back to using Coca-Cola.
Trust me when I say that you’ll be wanting this ham for MORE than just holidays… we like to have hams as a weekend meal, and then snack on the leftovers for lunches throughout the week. Ok, try it…I know you’re going to love it.
