Although the holidays are filled with yummy meals and dishes, those who are trying to maintain a healthier diet are often forced to choose between something that fits their meal plan and what’s truly delicious. Fortunately, this brown sugar glazed ham recipe from This Mom's Menu takes health-aware diners into account. This keto variation doesn’t add any additional sugars or carbohydrates to the plate.
Instead, the glaze recipe calls for brown sugar substitute, apple cider vinegar, cinnamon, ground cloves, nutmeg and dijon mustard, all of which combine to create a tasty, artificial sugar-free mixture. You won't be able to tell the difference between this healthy variant and the real deal. Pro tip: Since this recipe requires no added sugar, that also means seeking out a ham that isn't already cured in sugar.
When it comes to cutting these no-sugar hams, many of which still have a bone, a ham stand is a must-buy. This wooden ham stand from Jamonprive can help you navigate chopping, slicing and prepping your holiday ham. With iron fittings and nail heads to secure your ham in place, this handy contraption takes the grunt work out of trying to slice up a bone-in ham.
