Quick and Easy Sugar-Free Bourbon Glazed Ham
As a full time working Mom, I always want simple and easy. Criteria two is that it must be healthy! Phew, I’ve got both covered with this recipe!
With minimal ingredients and completely fuss-free – you will love this recipe.
A spiral-sliced ham is always pre-cooked, so you are really just reheating it. By adding juices, wrapping in foil, and baking at a low temperature you are preserving the moistness and tenderness. Adding the brown sugar bourbon glaze to the ham the last 15 to 20 minutes of baking makes it extra delicious and tender!
Sugar-Free Ham Glaze Does Not Have to Be Sugar-Free
You can substitute regular brown sugar for the Swerve brown sugar. No problem!
Using a brown sugar substitute like Swerve allows you to have the brown sugar taste, with no sugar. This was actually the first time I had made a recipe with Swerve brown sugar and you literally cannot tell a difference in the recipe. Love it!

How To Make This Low Carb Ham Recipe (Brown Sugar Bourbon Ham)
So easy and tastes great, you will love this! 🙂 Here are the steps to make Brown Sugar Bourbon Glazed Ham (Sugar-Free Glazed Ham):
Prepare Ham and Bake
Heat oven to 325. Lay foil down in a pan large enough to hold the ham. I used a 13 x 9 pan. Remove ham from packaging and place it in the 13 x 9 pan to save any juices. If your ham comes with a glaze packet, just discard. Wrap ham tightly in aluminum foil. Bake ham approximately 10 minutes per pound.
Make Glaze And Brush On Ham
About 30 minutes before ham is complete, melt butter on the stove and whisk all ingredients together.
Pull ham out of the oven and baste the glaze over all of the ham. Pull apart slices of ham to get glaze between the pieces. Reseal the foil tightly and continue baking for another 20 minutes.
Tip: Remember that the ham is already cooked. Be careful not to overcook and dry it out. You are basically only re-heating! If for some reason you do over bake it, don’t worry. Cover it in glaze 🙂 Ask me how I know…I forgot about my ham once. Oops.
Remove from oven and let ham sit for 15 to 20 minutes prior to serving. Enjoy!
