Looking for something different for your holiday table? This Citrus Stuffed Spiral Sliced Ham can be a new twist on your spiral cut ham classic.
If you love ham, you have come to the right place. This is not your boring old ham, dried out which needs a chaser of water with each bite. This is a stuffed ham. Yes, stuffed! We stuff turkeys for Thanksgiving, right? Why not stuff a ham for extra flavor and deliciousness for Easter…or any other festive occasion we can dream up.
If you love a ham with a boozy glaze, you should try our Brown Sugar Rum Baked Ham! I love to serve both with Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes and Oven Roasted Green Beans. Just the thought of it is making me hungry.

HOW TO MAKE THE GLAZE FOR CITRUS STUFFED SPIRAL SLICED HAM
Most hams come with a glaze packet. They are usually just full of sugar and sometimes don’t even taste very good.
For this ham recipe, we have you covered with a tasty glaze recipe that is completely delicious and add buku amounts of flavor! The recipe below is amazing, and can be used on way more than just ham! The key is in the orange marmalade. Choose one that uses high quality oranges for the most flavor!
When you’re ready to add the glaze, just brush it all over the ham and heat uncovered for another 30 minutes. The glaze adds another layer of flavor and makes a beautiful table presentation.
WILL HEATING A PRECOOKED HAM DRY IT OUT?
Because the ham is already cooked, you just want to heat it thru (140°F). The best way to do this is by using a lower oven temperature of 325°F, and covering the ham tightly with foil (right against the ham) to keep in the moisture. With this technique, adding water to the bottom of the pan is not necessary.
REMOVING SLICES FROM A SPIRAL SLICED HAM
One of the great things about a spiral sliced ham is, just like the name says…it’s already sliced. You just need to remove the slices from the bone. The easiest way is to turn the ham so the bone is sticking up, then cut the slices away from around the bone. Use a sharp knife to make cuts on each side of the bone, working from the flat end of the ham to the tapered end.
TOOLS FOR THIS RECIPE
- Roasting Pan with Rack to make easy work of heating and lifting the ham.
