Lawson’s Easter Ham

If you’re like me, a last second run to the store is happening in short order the day before Easter. Here is my go to full proof EASY Easter Ham recipe that will not only guarantee a happy family, but  an amazing breakfast casserole later.



How much ham person?

Bone in: 1 pound per person

Boneless: 1/2 pound per person

15 Pound Ham-

18 servings

3 hours to cook

20 min prep time

whole fully cooked bone-in ham (15 to 18 pounds)

  • whole cloves
  • 3 cups brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup spicy brown mustard
  • 1 can Dr Pepper or Coke
  • 3 tbsp. apple cider vinegar


Preheat the oven to 325°F.

Score the surface of the ham in a diamond pattern about 1/8-inch deep. Place cloves in the middle of each diamond. Place the ham in a large roasting pan with a rack, tent it with foil, and bake for 2 to 2 1/2 hours—or longer, depending on the package directions. (Some hams may require 3 to 3 1/2 hours at a lower temperature; just check the package.)

In a small saucepan, heat the brown sugar, mustard, vinegar, and soda until bubbly. Cook until reduced and a bit thicker, about 15 minutes.


After about 2 hours of baking time, remove the foil and brush the glaze on the ham in 20 minutes intervals (put the ham back in the oven, uncovered, in between) until it’s nice and glossy. Remove from the oven and allow to rest 15 to 20 minutes before carving.
