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.

    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. Hi there,

    I can’t to make this recipie, however, as per Becky’s question do you use Fresh Ham or Pre Cooked Spiral Ham?

    • Hi Susan, you can use either type of ham. I would suggest adjusting the cook time if the ham is pre-cooked.
