The Winner of the Smithfield Ham Giveaway is Jessica Todd!
Thanks to Smithfield, my family enjoyed a delicious Pecan Praline Spiral Sliced Smoked Ham over the Thanksgiving holiday. We usually have just turkey for Thanksgiving, but it was nice having the addition of a ham. I love Smithfield Hams because they're simple to prepare. Basically you just have to heat them up, so it doesn't get any easier than that.
I prepared the ham as directed in a preheated 325°F oven. Smithfield Hams only need to be warmed 10 to 12 minutes per pound (do not to overheat). After removing the ham from the oven, let the ham sit for 5 minutes before adding the glaze. Let glazed ham sit for 5 minutes before serving to allow glaze to melt over the ham. We loved the Smithfield Ham and it turned out really moist and delicious. Everyone loved it especially the Praline Pecan Glaze.
After supper we had plenty of leftovers, so I separated the ham in packages to use in a few ham recipes (always my favorite part). The ham bone and some additional ham pieces went in one freezer bag for crock pot ham and beans, and the remainder was used in this Southern Ham Salad pictured above. I love ham salad! It's super simple to make and perfect on crackers or on a sandwich.
All Smithfield Spiral Hams are fully cooked, hand trimmed, and uniformly sliced for quality, naturally hickory smoked and made with natural juices to create it's legendary flavor.
Smithfield offers three glaze flavors and is available at grocery stores nationwide
- Honey: The sweet and tangy flavor of the Honey glaze makes the Smithfield Hickory Smoked Spiral Sliced ham a hit at any gathering.
- Caramel Apple: The taste of sweet Caramel Apple flavor is a perfect complement on top of the family favorite Smithfield Hickory Smoked Spiral sliced ham.
- Pecan Praline: Pecan Praline glazed on a Smithfield Hickory Smoked spiral sliced ham offers a traditional southern flavor providing consumers with a sweet and savory taste.
My favorite ham salad is Paula Deen's recipe, so I included it below.
Southern Ham Salad
2 - cups leftover ham, chopped in a food processor
1/2 - cup finely diced celery
1/4 - cup minced onion
1 - teaspoon Dijon mustard

Mix all the ingredients together until well blended. Spread on crackers or bread.
