Ham seems to be the old go to for Easter dinner.  I know we've had it every years for as long as I can remember.  I will never argue about it though, I love ham and I love eating leftover ham, whether it be on a sandwich, or alongside some eggs and toast.

For the most part, preparing ham is pretty simple.  Most hams now come with a glaze packet to make it even simpler.

Here is where you can impress your family and friends with this very easy way to prepare using root beer and some other spices.  Check it out!

  • 1 boneless smoked ham (about 8 pounds)
  • 2 tablespoons whole cloves
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 cups root beer
  • 3 tablespoons ginger, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons grainy mustard
  1. Score diamond pattern into the ham and press cloves into the surface.
  2. Place in slow cooker and top with remaining ingredients.
  3. Cook on low 3 to 4 hours until temperature inside registers 140˚F.
  4. Transfer liquid in slow cooker to a pot and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium low and simmer until liquid thickens into a glaze, about 15 minutes.
  5. Brush glaze onto ham.
