This is my favorite spiral ham recipe. It will feed a crowd, or use what's remaining in two recipes. No one groans about ham leftovers when these items are on the menu. —Marilou Robinson, Portland, Oregon
Preheat oven to 325°. In a small skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a roasting pan; place ham on top. Pour the broth and red wine over ham.
Bake, uncovered, until a thermometer reads 140° and ham is heated through, 2-3 hours.
Spiral Ham Tips
How do you cut a spiral ham?
To cut a spiral ham, place the ham on its side on a cutting board. Begin cutting around the entire bone to separate the meat, going along the natural breaks of fat on each piece. Move the cut ham to a platter, and continue cutting around the bone and removing the meat until it's all cut. You may need to use a kitchen shears to cut away pieces of ham that have a lot of tissue connecting it to the bone. Check out our guide to how to cut a ham for more tips.
How should you store leftovers of spiral ham?
Leftover spiral ham will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for 3 to 4 days. For longer storage, freeze ham for up to 2 months.
