Honeybaked Ham: A Family tradition + Giveaway

Make sure you stick around to the end, there is a giveaway!
Do you have any favorite holiday traditions? I have found that a lot of my family holiday traditions involve food. It isn't real a holiday meal unless we serve a particular dish. One food tradition that I remember from growing up was getting a HoneyBaked Ham for the holidays. Have you ever had a HoneyBaked Ham? It is pretty much the best ham ever, in my opinion. It's so juicy and flavorful. The crust on the outside, is out of this world. When we first started buying them, it was pretty uncommon to find spiral cut hams. The spiral cut makes it to easy and effortless to serve.

I participated in an Influencer Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for HoneyBaked Ham. I received a gift card to facilitate my shopping trip and to thank me for participating. I used my gift card to buy a half ham, a side of Sweet Potato Souffle, some of the HoneyBaked Ham mustards and the bean soup mix. I love how the ham comes wrapped in gold. It lets you know that you are really getting something special! I also remember how excited we were to get home and take that gold wrapping off so we could get a nibble of ham!





HoneyBaked Ham carries a lot of of different side dishes in a freezer case in the store. It's awesome because you get the high quality HoneyBaked sides but you can can cook them on your schedule. I chose to try the Sweet Potato Souffle because that is something I have never had before. We enjoyed it a lot.

HoneyBaked Ham carries a large variety of mustards. My Mom has declared the Honey Mustard the best on the planet. My favorite was the Hickory Honey Mustard. It had a sweet smokiness to it that I really loved.
Your ham comes with all the instructions that you need, but I thought I would share some serving information with you. It's actually recommended that you serve the ham cold. It is already fully cooked and it is perfect right out of the package. If you wish to reheat it, the recommendation is to remove the slices you want and heat in the microwave. You can also re-heat the ham in the oven, covered with tinfoil. That is the method we went with. You just want to be careful not to overdo it. It's so perfectly juicy, you don't want to dry it out! Here's our family ham feast all ready to go.
In addition to the ham, and sweet potato souffle, we had funeral potatoes, rolls, sweet and sour cucumbers, and a green salad.
Here's the whole family gathered together for our HoneyBaked Ham feast.

We bought a 7.5 lb ham and had lots leftover with only nine of us eating. Remember I mentioned that I bought the bean soup mix. That stuff is so good. You cook up your ham bone with the beans and some water and you get a delicious soup. I bought the mixed bean, but I'm curious to try the white bean and split pea soup mix too. I love being able to make use of every part of the ham.

There is always a section of ham at the end that can't get spiral cut. For that, we chop it up and use it in my Baked Potato and Ham soup recipe. We seriously ate for a week out of that half ham.

Now that you are craving a HoneyBaked Ham, I've got some good news. I'm giving away a $25 gift certificate to HoneyBaked Ham!! Woohoo!
