I look forward to Easter every year. It’s one of my favorite holidays and one of my favorite meals to prepare! The ham, the potatoes, the desserts…it’s all so good!
We go to church on Easter Sunday, so I like to put our ham in the slow cooker before we leave so that it’s ready when we get home.
Slow Cooker Dijon Maple & Brown Sugar Glazed Ham Recipe
Cooking your ham in the slow cooker is the easiest, no-fail way to make a ham and it’s delicious every time!
We make (almost) the same meal every year. One thing that’s a constant – there’s ALWAYS ham on our table! My family loves our ham served on freshly baked rolls along side Cheesy Potatoes and Brussel Sprouts.
Mmmm! Such a simple meal, but so good! This easy Easter Meal has become our yearly tradition!
You can’t beat this slow cooker ham recipe! It’s super easy to make, always full of flavor, and so tender. Of course, you have to get a quality ham – that is a must!
We really like Boar’s Head Sweet Slice®Boneless Smoked Ham.
Boar’s Head Sweet Slice®Boneless Smoked Ham is gluten free and milk free and has the exceptional flavor of a traditional bone-in ham without the bone. Named for how simple it is to slice and serve, it’s the perfect centerpiece for any entertaining table.
Quick and easy to prepare and serve, you’ll be spending less time cooking and more time enjoying the company of your family and friends this spring.
I like to make a Maple and Brown Sugar Glaze that goes right on top of my ham before it goes into the slow cooker.
The glaze gives the ham a great flavor and color, too! Boar’s Head also carries a Brown Sugar and Spice Glaze you could buy if you want things to really get easy!
How long does it take to cook a ham in a crock pot?
I mix together 1/2 cup each of real maple syrup, brown sugar and whole grain dijon mustard into a bowl and pour right over the ham.
I’ve found that if you cut slits right into the top of the ham it allows the glaze to really sink down into the ham to give it a lot of flavor. It also makes the ham look pretty, too! Presentation is everything!
For this Slow Cooker Ham Recipe, you cook the entire ham on low for 6 hours or high for 3 hours. Either is fine! When it’s done, it is soooo good! Promise!
Look at that Easter Meal! The ham is the star of the meal, but I gotta tell you….the sides are amazing, too!

AND….you can’t forget dessert!
Boar’s Head even carries cheese and maple bacon that would be perfect for these recipes, as well!
These Coconut-Macaroon Nests are so easy to make, yet everyone will think you bought them at a bakery!
