Christmas Ham Recipes

Move over, turkey, and make way for traditional baked Christmas ham recipes. It's easy to see why ham is a go-to choice at Christmastime - like turkey, ham requires very little fuss once it's in the oven, makes a stunning impression on a platter, and is easily sliced into individual portions. And there's nothing more heavenly than the scent of a honey-glazed, clove-studded ham as it roasts - the aroma says "holiday" the moment you step into the house. Plus, ham plays nicely with lots of different side dishes, so you can invite your family and friends to bring over all kinds of <a href="/recipes/christmas/side-dishes/">vegetables</a>, <a href="/recipes/christmas/salad/">salads</a>, and <a href="/recipes/christmas/desserts">desserts</a> and know that the meal - like your family - will make good company.
