 Ingredients List

  • 10 lb Ham *
  • 6 c Coca-Cola
  • 1 c Brown Sugar, Dark, Packed
  • 1 tb Dry Mustard
  • 2 tb Sharp Prepared Mustard
  • 2 c Bread Crumbs, Fine, Dry


* Ham should be one of the precooked hams. Not one of the specialty cured
or canned hams. Just the standard bone in ham in the meat counter.

Preheat oven to 325oF. Place ham, fat side down, in a shallow baking pan.
Pour coke into pan until it is 1/2-inch deep. Bake 2 to 3 hours, or until
ham can be easily pierced with a fork, basting with the Coca-Cola every 15
to 20 minutes. (Center of ham will read 140oF on a meat thermometer when
properly cooked.) Remove ham from the pan and cool. Cut away rind and fat
with a sharp knife. Combine sugar, mustards, bread crumbs, and enough Coke
to form a thick paste. Place ham on roasting rack in pan and pat all over
with the paste. Add remaining coke to the bottom of the pan. Increase the
temperature to 375oF and bake the ham 45 minutes longer, basting every 20
to 15 minutes until sugar-mustard paste has melted to a dark glaze. Let
stand at room temperature 30 minutes before slicing.
