This is a family favorite! Wonderful flavor and very simple to make. My husband thought it would be a good "company's coming" recipe. And the Nutty Broccoli recipe that's recommended to go with it is a nice complement!

This is such a quick and easy recipe to make. However, the onions are not the best thing to put with this. Having a piece with no onion was heavenly and it took away the flavor of the rest. Before putting the ham in the pan, I did pat both sides with brown sugar and instead of apple juice I used apple cider because it brings out more flavor than juice. It turned out fabulous otherwise and I will be making this again.

I used my own home canned apple butter for this. This is easy and good. Next time I will try olive oil or part olive oil to replace all or part of the butter.

My whole family LOVED this is was very easy to make and superyummy! I was SO glad I doubled it though, it would not have been enough for us otherwise.

I didn't care for the onions, but otherwise it was simple and sweet.
