This Crockpot Honey Mustard Glazed Ham is oozing with delicious flavors and a must for the holidays! A handful of ingredients and made in a crockpot, this glazed ham couldn’t get any easier to prepare!
Are you a ham or turkey fan for Thanksgiving? I personally love both. I don’t think I can decide which is better because I’ll be just as happy with either for Thanksgiving. I do like ham because there’s more meat than bones, and you can get these beautiful spiral cut hams that require very little effort to prepare. Plus you can prepare them in the crockpot which frees up your oven, and we all know that oven is precious on Thanksgiving day.
Hams are really easy because they’re already cooked and basically all we need to do is add a yummy glaze over them, put them in a slow cooker and forget about them until ready to serve.
I think a honey mustard glaze is pretty common and popular because it’s an easy glaze to put together and it uses ingredients we pretty much already have in our home.
I love using a spiral cut ham for this and usually you can find them in abundance during Thanksgiving, though they’re not cheap. However, I have used an uncut ham before and that works just as well, it’s just that it’s a bit more work required because you have to slice it up yourself. Hams that don’t come pre-sliced are a bit cheaper and you can find them pretty much year round, so sometimes that might be the best option.
Here are just a few of my favorite sides that would be perfect to be served with this ham:
- Mashed Potatoes
- Loaded Scalloped Potatoes
- Old Fashioned Green Beans
- Scalloped Sweet Potatoes
- Crockpot Cheesy Mashed Potatoes
- Garlic and Herb Roasted Carrots
- Cheesy Mashed Potatoes with Bacon and Chives
- Sweet Potato Casserole
- Green Bean Casserole
- Italian Roasted Mushrooms and Veggies

This Crockpot Honey Mustard Glazed Ham is oozing with delicious flavors and a must for the holidays! A handful of ingredients and made in a crockpot, this glazed ham couldn't get any easier to prepare!
In a small saucepan add the brown sugar, honey, mustard, water and cloves and bring to a boil stirring occasionally. Cook for about 5 minutes over medium heat. The glaze should be fragrant from the cloves and mustard.
Place the ham in a large slow cooker, make sure it's large enough so that you can put the lid on it. Pour the glaze over the entire ham. Close the lid and cook on low for 4 to 6 hours or high for 2 to 3 hours. Baste the ham every hour with the glaze. Don't stress if you forget.
The ham will be ready when it reaches an internal temperature of 140 F degrees. Serve with the remaining glaze.
My ham was a bit too tall for the slow cooker so I had to trim a couple inches from the top, so make sure the ham will fit your slow cooker. Sometimes placing it on its side will also work.
Store leftover ham in its juices in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. I usually just store it in the crockpot with the lid on in the fridge. My crockpot has a locking lid.
Baking instructions: Preheat the oven to 170 F degrees. Place the ham in a large casserole dish and pour the glaze over the entire ham. Bake for about 1 hour and 30 minutes, brushing with glaze every half hour.
Instant Pot instructions: Place the ham in the instant pot and pour the glaze over the ham. Close the lid and cook on high pressure for 7 minutes. Once the Instant Pot cycle is complete, wait until the natural release cycle is complete, should take about 10 to 15 minutes. Follow the manufacturer's guide for quick release, if in a rush. Carefully unlock and remove the lid from the instant pot.
Nutritional information assumes about 3/4 lb of ham per person. Please keep in mind that nutritional information is a rough estimate and can vary greatly based on products used.
