This honey baked ham recipe uses a spiral ham and can be made in the crockpot. The glaze is a copycat to the store-bought version – creating a sugary crust. Keep your oven free by making this in the slow cooker!

We aren't near a Honey Baked Ham anymore to even considering making a purchase for the holidays. We never did anyway since our families always prepared the main proteins during our big dinners. I'm glad too since the ham can put you back over $50 (or more, depending on the size).

Well you can make it yourself for a fraction of the price! If you want to recreate the same flavor that Honey Baked Ham has, this copycat recipe is it!

It's simple and can be made in the crockpot – BONUS! This will make you wondering why you ever purchased a ham to begin with!

  • 7-8 lb Spiral Sliced Ham

    I’m trying this today however I had to improvise as the ham was bigger than called for and I could not put the top on to the slow cooker. I’m using aluminum foil to cover it. Hopefully it will work. I increased the juice, maple syrup and brown sugar to accommodate the fact I hadn’t looked that my ham was 10 lbs and not 7-8 lbs.
