Slow Cooker Ham & Pineapple Glaze

In this post I am sharing an easy Slow Cooker Ham & Pineapple Glaze recipe.

I know I’ve mentioned more times than y’all probably care to remember that I love cooking holiday meals and entertaining. Well, not everyone does nor do they have a lot to cook for. That got me to thinking I needed to add a few dishes for small holiday gatherings so there are options to suit everyone.

I think this crock pot ham is about as easy as you can get. The ham is a smoked pre-cooked ham so you’re basically just heating it up with a glaze.

This is not a sponsored post but I get asked a lot about what products I am using. The ham I used in this recipe is a Kentucky Legend Ham. I like their products, particularly because you can get a small ham if there are just two of you at home to cook for. 

These small hams are super easy for a meal any day of the week and priced reasonably. If serving for a holiday meal, just dress things up a bit with pineapple slices and maraschino cherries. Pretty, huh! More importantly….EASY!

The hams vary in size but for the two and a half pound ham used here, I figured everyone would get two slices and that gives you twelve servings. I used about half of the leftovers and made a batch of ham salad.
