What’s the best way to reheat a Kroger spiral ham?
It’s no problem! Preheat the oven to 350F and bake pre-cooked ham for 10 minutes per pound, or raw ham for 20 minutes per pound, for a warm, juicy supper. When a thermometer put into the thickest portion of the ham reads 145F, it’s ready to eat. Cover the ham with foil and set aside for 10 minutes before serving.
How do you cook a spiral-sliced honey ham that is thoroughly cooked?
Remove the ham from the package and lay it on a rack in a roasting pan half-filled with water, apple juice, or lemon/lime soda. Place in the oven, covered in foil. Heat to an internal temperature of 140 degrees Fahrenheit using a meat thermometer. ** Because the ham is fully cooked, be careful not to overcook it, as this can cause it to dry out.
How long should a spiral Honey Baked Ham be cooked?
The length of time it takes to cook a spiral ham is determined by its size.
You should expect roughly 10 minutes per pound if you cook it at 275 degrees, as our recipe suggests.
So, for an 8-pound spiral ham, plan on roughly 80 minutes, or 1 hour and 20 minutes.
You’ll want to take it out of the oven as soon as the internal temperature hits 140 degrees so it doesn’t dry out or turn tough around the edges.

What’s the best way to reheat a fully cooked Kroger ham?
Plan 12 to 15 minutes per pound at 300 degrees to reheat a completely cooked ham, as shown in our Honey Ginger Baked Ham recipe below. If you’re using another recipe that calls for a different oven temperature, you may need to change the cook time.
How do you reheat a spiral ham that has been fully cooked?
Cover the entire ham or portion with thick aluminum foil and heat at 325 F for about 10 minutes per pound to reheat a spiral-sliced ham in a standard oven. Individual slices can be be reheated in the microwave or in a skillet.
What’s the best way to reheat a precooked ham without it drying out?
These hams are great cold, but the instructions for reheating them are usually on the packaging. Place the cut-side-down ham on heavy-duty aluminum foil and wrap it tightly. Alternatively, use an oven roasting bag and prepare according to the bag’s instructions. Bake for 10-14 minutes per pound in a preheated 325F oven, or until a meat thermometer reaches 135F. Before serving, remove from the oven and set aside for 10 minutes. If the ham came with extra glaze, add it and cook it according to the package recommendations. Turn the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, brush the ham with the glaze, and bake for 10-15 minutes, or until the glaze is golden and bubbling. Allow for a 10-minute rest before slicing to serve.
Do you bake the ham with a cover on it?
Baking a ham isn’t as difficult as you would imagine. I simply put the ham in a roasting pan (or 913 pan) and cover it with a cup of ginger ale and a cup of orange juice. This not only enhances the flavor of the ham, but it also helps to keep it juicy as it cooks.
Wrap foil around the ham or around the pan. Make sure the ham is tightly covered to avoid drying out.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and bake the ham for 15-20 minutes, basting halfway through. When basting the ham, uncover it, but cover it again when putting it back in the oven.
When cooking a spiral ham, should you cover it?
Spiral cut hams usually weigh between 8 and 11 pounds and are already cooked (make sure your package says pre-cooked). This means that when cooking a ham, all you need to do is heat it through. The easiest way to accomplish this is to cook it at a low temperature so that the outside does not dry up before the interior is heated.
Use a meat thermometer to reach 140 degrees Fahrenheit and do not overcook a spiral ham to avoid it drying out. I normally take it out about 135F and monitor the temperature with a thermometer until it reaches 140F.
The length of time it takes to cook a spiral ham depends on its size, but plan about 13-16 minutes per pound at 250F, uncovered. If your ham is done early, take it out of the oven and set it aside to cool somewhat so it doesn’t continue to cook. Cover with foil once slightly cooled and wait to cut until ready to serve.
Glazing Spiral Ham
If you’re glazing your ham, such as when creating a replica homemade honey baked ham, do so near the end to avoid it burning. I always opt for a simple homemade glaze instead of the glaze that comes with my ham.
Simply apply it during the last 20 minutes of cooking. To make the glaze nice and sticky, I occasionally turn the oven up or put it under the broiler for a few minutes.
