Honey and Pineapple Glazed Ham

Honey and pineapple glazed ham, steamed veges, creamy mashed potatoes, and caramelized pineapple.

Dinner for 2

You will need:

  • 750 gram ham fillet
  • 1 tin (at least 425g) sliced pineapple
  • 1 head of broccoli
  • 2 large carrots

Honey and Pineapple Glaze

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/2 cup honey

Creamy Mashed Potatoes

  • 2 large potatoes (diced)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • Stick of butter
  • 1/4 cup milk

Pre-heat the oven to 180°C

The Glaze: In a saucepan on the stove top heat brown sugar, honey and pineapple juice until the sugar has dissolved. Reduce the heat and simmer until the sauce becomes think.

The Ham: Cover the base of a baking tray with tin-foil and sliced pineapple. Place the ham on top and score to make one-inch diamonds. If you like, you can put olives or cloves in the corners. Cover the ham in the glaze and tent it.

Bake for one hour in the pre-heated oven (at 180C), or until cooked through, reapplying glaze every ten minutes.

The Potatoes: About 20 minutes before the ham is ready it is a good idea to start the potatoes. Bring a pot of lightly salted water to boil. Add diced potatoes to the water and boil for about 10 minutes or until they look soft and floury.

Strain the potatoes of water and return them to the pot on a light heat. Add butter, milk and mash. Add seasoning to taste and stir through.

The Vege: Add a few tablespoons of water to a medium sized saucepan. Place chopped carrot and broccoli and replace the lid. Steam until the colours are bright and the vegetables are firm, but juicy to bite. For me this is normally about 10 minutes.

Serve together on a large plate. Enjoy!
