Mealthy Tip

Make sure you're using a spiral-cut ham. They are already cooked, so you're just adding your flavors and heating for service. Plus, they make serving a breeze!

Delicious ham recipe! I used the glaze packet that came with the ham and just added some lemon juice and honey it. Spectacular. You can definitely eat this even when it's not holiday or special occasion. I have a large family so it feeds them with some leftovers too.

Never knew that the spiral sliced ham was already cooked. I had family coming over for Easter and need to make something quick and easy. Stumbled across this recipe and it was amazing. The pressure cooker does a great job of hearing it through.

Found a nice spiral cut ham at the grocery store, heated it in my pressure cooker just in time for guests to come over on Easter. It was an impromptu dinner but I pulled it off thanks to my pressure cooker.

Love this dish. Made this for Sunday dinner with the family and they loved it. I used creole mustard and molasses instead of dijon and honey. Used the left overs for sandwiches the next day

I want to make this, can I use a ham that is not sliced?
