You won’t believe how easy it is to prepare this 5-Ingredient Apricot Glazed Ham!  Sure, it’s spring…and sure, Easter is almost here.  And while this beautiful and impressive-looking main course would be an obvious centerpiece on your Easter dinner table, please don’t overlook it as a great weeknight meal as well.  I promise, it’s that easy!

5 Ingredient Apricot Glazed Ham

By mixing together just a few simple ingredients and heating a ham in your oven, you can have a fancy-schmancy-looking dinner on the table with just a mere 5 minutes of prep time!  My boys loved the combination of the sweet glaze over the salty ham.  And I especially appreciate that the ham is pre-sliced, which eliminates one more step in the process of getting this dinner on the table fast.  If you have any left-overs, just keep the ham in the refrigerator to enjoy on sandwiches throughout the week.  This recipe is a true winner!

  1. This looks delicious! I usually use a brown sugar or maple glaze on ham, but apricots sound like a great alternative.
