A delicious 3 Ingredient Ham Glaze recipe that is perfect for your favorite ham recipe. Save this one for the holidays!


  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard 


  1. Combine ingredients in a small bowl.
  2. Taste any flavor, as desired.
  3. Cook your ham, however you desire (we love this baked ham recipe and this spiral ham recipe). Brush the glaze over the ham when you have approx. 20 minutes of cook time left. Finish cooking, uncovered, so glaze becomes tacky. Feel free to use a kitchen torch to crisp up the outside before serving if preferred or finish under the broiler for a few minutes. 


  • Saucepan: you can also just make this in a saucepan, if preferred. Just warm slightly on the stovetop until the butter melts.
