It’s Easter time, and among other things, that means hams go on sale. I can’t pass up a cheap ham, so I grabbed a smoked spiral-sliced ham at the market. I warmed it up per the package instructions (does it get any easier?), but instead of using the odd-looking and somewhat questionable packet of glaze that came with the ham I brushed it with this great Sriracha honey ham glaze. Man, was it ever good! Just enough of that great Sriracha flavor and kick, with a tad bit of sweetness!
The Sriracha honey glazed ham was great by itself, but flat-out perfect on toasted ciabatta with extra sharp sliced cheddar cheese, mayonnaise and yellow mustard. I also chopped up the ham after glazing it and used it in an out-of-this-world great omelet. It was so good that I think I’ll go to the market early tomorrow and grab another ham while they are still on sale.
If you’re looking to step up your ham with a coffee-infused gravy, check out my red- and black-eyed gravies. Also make my cherry sauce glaze! My pepper onion beer sauce makes for a great topping for ham!
Sriracha Honey Ham Glaze
- 1/2 cup honey
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons Sriracha sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
- Place all ingredients in a small saucepan over medium low heat and heat thoroughly while your ham is cooking.
- When the ham is done brush the glaze over the ham. If you want, save a bit of the glaze for brushing on the sliced ham.
