Easter is fast approaching. Ham is a traditional Easter food for our family as it is with many others. This recipe can be used with leftover ham OR on the big day. Why not? It's also the fastest real dinner I've ever made. Seriously.
Two 1 lb ham steaks (you can purchase these in the deli section if you can't find them)
3/4 cup brown sugar
3 Tbsp mustard (honey mustard is a great option or adding honey to your mustard)
1.5 Tbsp lemon juice
3/4 tsp lemon peel, grated
1 lemon, thinly sliced
1. Preheat broiler. Assemble glaze: In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, mustard, lemon juice and lemon peel.
2. Place ham slice in a large broiling pan. Broil for 2 minutes; brush with some of the glaze and broil for another 5 minutes. Turn over and broil for 2 more minutes.
3. Arrange lemon slices on top of steaks; brush on remaining glaze. Broil for 5 more minutes or until glaze is bubbling.
Makes 8 servings, 225 calories each.
**You can also cook the ham in a skillet using the same instructions. When using leftover ham, spread the glaze on heavily and then heat it up in a microwave or skillet. The glaze prevents the ham from drying out.
(That's extra glaze on the plate. You'll want to LICK IT CLEAN!)
Recipe care of my husband's aunt. She graciously prepared a book of simple Sunday dinners and gave it to me. I'll be sharing more!
