This Honey Dijon Crockpot Ham Recipe is the perfect combination of sweet and salty. Tender ham is smothered in a sweet, buttery glaze and cooked to juicy perfection in the slow cooker!
I’ll say again and again… I love crockpot recipes. I mean, who doesn’t love a delicious meal you can throw in one pot ahead of time then just going about your day until it’s cooked and ready to go?! Seriously.
I highly recommend giving this honey dijon crockpot ham recipe a try. It’s sweet, it’s salty, and it’s INSANELY easy…you’re gonna love it!
Besides the ham, I bet you have all of these ingredients on hand already! This recipe is as simple as it gets!
- Brown Sugar and Honey – the perfect combination of sweeteners to balance out the savory ham. Brown sugar adds a rich molasses flavor while the honey adds sweet, floral notes.
- Unsalted Butter – helps keep the ham moist and adds a rich, buttery flavor.
- Dijon Mustard – offsets the sweetness of the brown sugar and honey with its tangy, slightly spicy flavor.
- Garlic – rounds out the other sweeter, spicier flavors with its nutty taste.
- Ham – pre-cooked and boneless. You can either use whole or pre-sliced ham.
