Herb & Honey Glazed Ham with Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Not only is this ham delicious but it is also gorgeous – thanks to the glistening glaze that shimmers over the top of the show-stopping holiday roast.


  • 5 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into large chunks
  • 12 shallots, peeled
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) each finely chopped fresh rosemary and thyme
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) each salt and pepper
  • 1 Kentucky Legend Whole Ham
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) butter
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) honey
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) grainy mustard
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) each finely chopped fresh rosemary and thyme


  1. Roast: Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Toss together potatoes, shallots, oil, rosemary, thyme, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Arrange in an even layer in a large, heavy-bottom roasting pan. Lay ham over potatoes, in center of pan.
  2. Glaze: In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine sugar, butter and honey; stir and heat until everything is dissolved. Turn heat to medium-low and continue stirring mixture until well combined and bubbling around edge. Whisk in Dijon, grainy mustard, garlic, rosemary and thyme until well incorporated. Brush one-quarter of the glaze over ham; cover with foil.
  3. Bake for about 1 hour or until sweet potatoes are tender; uncover and brush ham with additional glaze. Increase temperature to 400°F (200°C). Roast, brushing often with remaining glaze, for 30 to 45 minutes or until caramelized and instant-read thermometer registers 145°F (63°C) when inserted into center of ham. Let stand for 5 minutes before slicing. Serve with sweet potatoes and shallots on the side.

Tip: Add a spicy element to the glaze by whisking in 2 tbsp (30 mL) sriracha hot sauce along with the mustard.
