When the holidays roll around it always seems that my to do list is a million miles long.

I love to host and but along with preparing to welcome friends and family for Christmas or Easter, I am giving a lot of thought to our holiday meal. Both of these meals are always centered around a succulent Crock Pot Ham!

I love making ham in the slow cooker because not only does it save oven space, you only need about 5 minutes of prep to set and forget. The result it total ham perfection every time!

Glaze for Crock Pot Ham

That’s right, this easy ham recipe is ready for the crock pot in 5 minutes, which makes it perfect for savoring the moments with your family instead of spending an entire day in the kitchen!

The glaze on this slow cooker ham steals the show, it has a hint of tang from the dijon mustard and vinegar and a hint of sweetness from the brown sugar and apple jelly.

These flavors combined with garlic and rosemary create a fragrant and delicious Crock Pot Ham that you will want to make time and time again.

We serve this Crock Pot Ham alongside our favorite Garlic Mashed Potatoes and a of course Bacon Green Beans, 30 Minute Dinner Rolls and a fresh salad.

While any leftovers you have make pretty much the best ever ham sandwich on toast or grilled ham and cheese.  I’ve also used leftovers in everything from ham and potato casseroles to corn chowder.

This recipe is also great for occasions like Easter and Thanksgiving, or anytime you will gather with friends or family and share a meal!

With only a few minutes of effort to prep it and a few hours in the Crock Pot, you will have an unforgettable ham that is sure to become a family favorite!
