Brown Sugar Glazed Ham : Holiday Main Dishes : Recipes on

We fix our Ham traditionally with a brown sugar and pineapple juice glaze, whole cloves and pineapple slices on top. The thing I like most about cooking a large meal, specifically the main dish, is that you can get several meals from the leftovers.

When buying your ham, allow 1/2 – 3/4 pounds per person, of course, larger if you want leftovers.

Cooking a large ham or turkey for the Holidays may seem like a lot of work, and the initial cost of the meat (usually over $10 for a whole ham or turkey) can be a lot for your budget, but if you buy during the holidays when the prices are lower, you can save money. Most hams are around $1.50 per pound, making the cost of the meat less expensive than even ground beef.
