Slow Cooker Brown Sugar Pineapple Ham

Slow Cooker recipes are definitely in our happy place for during the hectic holiday season. Any time we can avoid losing oven space it makes holiday prep and cooking so much easier.

Hey guys, its Sabrina again from Dinner, then Dessert. I’m sharing one of my favorite ham recipes today because the holidays are about all things impressive and giant platters of ham and turkey and beef are easy ways to feed big crowds!

This Slow Cooker Brown Sugar Pineapple Ham is the perfect recipe for the slow cooker because hams are already cooked and only need to be gently warmed through. With the added brown sugar pineapple glaze you’ll have a deliciously tender ham with tons of flavor.

Don’t forget to keep your leftover ham for more recipes after the holidays. Make the slow cooker do all the heavy lifting!

A spiced fruity topping on this holiday ham is the perfect addition to your holiday parties! Don't buy an expensive ham!

How much ham do i need per person?

We like to estimate about 3/4 pound of ham per person (with the bone in). However, if you have a bunch of hungry boys that eat a ton like I do, you can increase it to 1 pound. You might end up with some leftovers, but that’s a good thing! Use 1/2 pound per person with a boneless ham.

How to store Cooked Ham?

A baked Ham can be stored in the fridge for up to 4 days.

Tips:

  • It’s best to use a large 8-Quart oval slow cooker for this recipe.
  • The drier the ham, the better. This helps the glaze stay on.
  • Make sure the ham fits into the slow cooker with space between it and the lid.
  • For more flavor rub the glaze between the slices gently too.
  • If you prefer a crispier ham you can finish it in the oven at 375 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes before serving.
