4 Ingredient Slow Cooker Glazed Ham

Updated on January 9, 2013
Cast your vote for Slow Cooker Glazed Ham

Glazed ham is something usually reserved for special occasions, or Sunday night dinner because of all of the work involved tending to it in the oven. This recipe is a simple 4 ingredient slow cooker version that can be made even for a weeknight supper, and is equally elegant to serve when company is coming over.

For ease of slicing, a boneless ham is used. It is fully cooked, and when on sale, can be very economical. Mine cost $7.00! The other ingredients you may already have on hand.

If desired, the sauce can be thickened with cornstarch after the ham is removed, but I didn't feel it was necessary. This goes well with scalloped potatoes, or rice, and a vegetable for an easy balanced dinner. Enjoy!

      Can't wait to try it. And as a diabetic, I can get all three items sugar free. Might become a favorite, easy crock pot dinner. Thanks.

      Hope you give it a try. I find ham can go on sale for a great price every once in a while, and this recipe really is foolproof!

      You know, I have never tried to cook a ham. This recipe sounds super easy. I'll have to give it a try.

      Thank you for looking. It turned out very well, and tastes like a lot more effort was put in. I will check out the creamed corn you mentioned. Sounds delicious!

      What a wonderful and easy recipe for those weekday nights! I was looking for something to go with SmartAndFun's Sweet Creamed Corn with Toasted Parmesan Crust side. Yummy! Voted Up! and useful!--Deb
