Sitting Pretty - 4 Great Glazes For Your Holiday Ham!

Putting a grand-occasion meal on the table really can be fuss-free. Fast-track your way to fabulous with a Glazed Baked Ham.

A baked ham slathered with a sweet-tart glaze is the holiday cook's greatest ally. There's no real cooking involved; you simply heat it through. To glaze your ham, use the tip of a sharp paring knife to score the ham with quarter-inch-deep parallel lines, one inch apart. Score the skin in the opposite direction to create a diamond pattern. Place ham on a rimmed baking sheet lined with foil, then parchement; tent with foil, and bake in 300 degree oven until heated through, about 15 minutes per pound.

Holiday Ham

Remove the foil, and brush the ham all over with the glaze of your choice. Bake it 15 minutes more, and then brush with more glaze and any juices on the baking sheet. Finally, bake it until the skin is burnished, another 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer it to a carving board to rest at least 15 minutes before slicing.

Here are 4 Great Glazes for your Holiday Ham!

The Splurge -> Standing Rib Roast!

When you start with the most indulgent cut of beef out there, salt and pepper are really all you need for seasoning. This roast is about execution, so make sure your oven temperature and meat thermometer are double-checked! A standing rib roast is a very special treat and traditional holdiay fare.

Prime rib refers to the king of beef cuts, the standing rib roast, “standing” because to cook it, you simply position the roast on its rib bones in the roasting pan, no need for a rack. Estimate 2 people served for every rib. Note that just because you are ordering a “prime” rib, it doesn’t mean that you are getting USDA Prime. Most “prime ribs” we get from market are actually USDA Choice quality. If you want USDA Prime prime rib, which has more fat marbling throughout the meat, and which can easily cost 50% more per pound, you will likely need to special order it from your butcher.

Standing Rib Roast
Treat your family to this foolproof recipe for Roast Prime Rib of Beef with Horseradish Crust during the holiday season, it feeds a crowd and is very impressive.
