When times get busy and stressful in my house, I like to turn to my slow cooker to help alleviate the dinner stress. That doesn’t change during the holidays. In fact, I probably use it even more often because I’m extra busy. A Slow Cooker Ham is perfect for this time of year!

For this recipe, I prep the ham the night before I’m going to serve it. I do this right inside of the slow cooker bowl. In the morning, I just set the cooker on low and go about my day. That evening I have a delicious smelling dinner ready to go.Dinner is free from stress and for a moment, it feels almost like I have a personal chef who did all the cooking.

  1. Hi, I just popped over from the 'DIY Sunday Showcase. You couldn't have posted this at a better time, I have just asked friends to bring me back 2 Hams back from Germany (I live in Holland and you can not buy the right joint where I live). I'm definitely going to give this one a whirl - thanks for posting!
  2. Such a great idea! I am so trying this! Thanks for linking up to Merry Monday! Sharing on our MM Pinterest Board! Have a great week! Kim Kim~madeinaday recently posted..Plaid Fabric StarsMy Profile

  3. You are my hero. This recipe looks like it will save the day,
  4. What kind of ham do you recommend using?
    • Hi Becky, we typically buy whatever ham is on sale. Bone-in ham gives a little more flavor, but then you are also paying for the weight of the bone. We have also bought spiral hams and they are good as well. ~Liz
