    Delicious! I made this recipe tonight, as written, except that I added a squeeze of prepared mustard. When the ham was done, I took it out of the pan, added a splash of vinegar, and cooked cabbage and sliced carrots in it, as a side dish. Also quite tasty.

    Quick and easy, delicious ham. I serve in bite size pieces with fresh pineapple, for a snack or appetizer.

    We loved this recipe. I followed PageRD and cut the butter and sugar down by 1 TBSP each. We will definitely make this again.

    This couldn't be easier or more delicious! I cut the butter and sugar down by 1 tablespoon each. Since I had an apple that needed to be used, I sliced it up and threw it into the butter and sugar mixture before adding the ham back in. So good!
