Brown Sugar Glazed Ham

Typically, I’m the last person to shop for Thanksgiving dinner. Because I’m THAT person in line at the grocery store buying the supplies the night before, I typically have to forego the traditional turkey in place for a ham. But, that does not make my meal any less delicious.

I was experimenting in the kitchen last night in preparation of the big meal, especially on a new glaze for the ham. What I came up with is not only super easy, it’s super delicious. A fool-proof way to wow your guests this holiday season.


Why should the ham get all the glory? Don't forget to use coconut oil when cooking your sides as well.

1 baked ham, saving the juice

1 cup light brown sugar

1 tablespoon Kelapo Coconut Oil


  1. Score diamond shapes in the ham and bake according to directions. Time and temperature will vary based on a cooked, bone-in and uncooked ham.
  2. Remove ham from oven in the last 20 minutes.
  3. In separate bowl, mix juice from ham roasting pan (approx. 1 cup), brown sugar and coconut oil. Stir until well blended.
  4. Brush or spoon mixture over ham, reserving some for serving. Return ham to oven and finish baking.
  5. Serve warm with additional glaze, if desired.

I ate mine with cabbage, one of my favorite veggies. To make the full dinner table, you could also pair with Garlic Mashed Cauliflower or these paleo-friendly Mashed Sweet Potatoes. Ham and apples are also a delicious pairing – so for dessert you could whip up some of Fit Men Cook’s Stuffed Baked Apples.

Eat up, be thankful, and have a wonderful time with your friends and family!
