Citrus slices, garlic and herbs steam in flavor to this keto and low carb holiday buffet favorite! The orange glaze will make any holiday dinner feel extra special!
A glazed, spiral sliced ham is a favorite at so many holiday tables. This Keto Citrus Stuffed Spiral Ham recipe will make sure that your ham has the key things needed for deliciousness – plenty of flavor and that it’s nice and moist. And one of the best parts of a spiral-sliced ham is that it’s precooked, so you don’t need to worry about whether it is “done”.
This recipe is tailored for an already cooked, bone in, spiral sliced ham. It’s my favorite type of ham to buy because it’s smoky and delicious, and the work is already done for me!
Easter and Christmas are our two big “Ham” meal days of the year. Before I started eating low carb and gluten-free, I would doctor up the glaze packet that came with the ham, and that would be it. Now that I’m eating healthier, and dragging the family along on this adventure with me, that packet is tossed as soon as I open the netting around the ham.
How To Make The Glaze
Most hams come with a glaze packet. They are usually full of sugar, so throw it out.
For this Keto ham, we have you covered with a tasty glaze recipe that is completely low carb friendly. The recipe below is amazing, and can be used on way more than just ham!
WILL HEATING THE HAM DRY IT OUT?
Since the ham is already cooked, you just want to heat it thru. The best way to do this is by using a lower oven temperature and covering the ham with foil to keep in the moisture. When you’re ready to add the glaze, just brush it all over the ham and heat uncovered for another 30 minutes. The glaze adds another layer of flavor and makes a beautiful table presentation.
REMOVING THE SLICES FROM THE HAM
One of the great things about a spiral sliced ham is, just like the name says…it’s already sliced. You just need to remove the slices from the bone. The easiest way is to turn the ham so the bone is sticking up, then cut the slices away from around the bone. Use a sharp knife to make cuts on each side of the bone, working from the flat end of the ham to the tapered end.
