The bourbon mustard glaze adds unexpected flavor to this baked ham. This ham is baked with a flavorful bourbon and mustard glaze.

The bourbon and mustard glaze recipe takes just minutes to prepare. The ham is basted with the glaze throughout the baking time.


  • 1 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 1/2 cup good quality Kentucky bourbon
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 ham half (about 6 to 8 pounds fully cooked)

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Preheat oven to 325 F.

  3. Combine the honey and molasses; heat in the microwave or in a pan on the stove top. Stir in bourbon, orange juice, and mustard.

  4. Remove all but about 1/4-inch of fat from the ham, then place in a roasting pan. Bake for about 1 1/2 hours, or until a meat thermometer reaches 140 F (about 10 minutes per pound). Baste the ham occasionally with the honey-bourbon mixture.

  5. Transfer drippings to a saucepan and add remaining honey mixture; bring to a boil. Slice ham and serve with the glaze.

  6. Enjoy!
