How to Make Cola Glazed Baked Ham

The glaze is super simple. Only 3 ingredients – brown sugar, dijon mustard, and Coke. I brushed the glaze all over the ham and in-between the slices. Make sure to get the glaze in-between all those slices!! You want every slice to have amazing flavor!!

  • I bought a fully cooked spiral baked ham at the grocery store. 
  • I bought an 8-pound ham because that was the smallest one that they had.
  • Since the ham is already cooked, you are only heating up the ham. You are looking for an internal temperature of 140ºF.
  • Cook the ham about 13 to 16 minutes per pound. I baked our ham covered for about an hour and then baked it an additional 30 minutes uncovered.
  • Baste the ham with the glaze every 10 minutes as it baked uncovered.
  • Can I make Cola Glazed Ham in the slow cooker? Yes! Place the ham in the slow cooker and cover with glaze. Cover and cook on LOW until the ham reaches an internal temperature of 140ºF.
    • Tip – if your lid won’t cover the ham, cover the crockpot with some heavy-duty aluminum foil instead.
