How do you prepare sliced ham that is fully cooked?
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.
