Add spice and coffee to your next holiday ham. The espresso flavor pairs well with the brown sugar and ground spices, making every bite of ham a tasty, meaty mouthful.


  • 1 fully cooked ham (about 5 pounds)
  • 1 tablespoon instant espresso powder
  • 3/4 cup hot water
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. If ham is fatty, trim fat. Place ham on a roasting rack in a roasting pan, and bake 30 minutes.
  2. In a small bowl, dissolve espresso in hot water. Add remaining ingredients and stir well. Baste ham with coffee mixture.
  3. Bake ham an additional 45 minutes, basting every 10 minutes. Remove ham from oven, tent with foil, and allow to stand 5 to 10 minutes before slicing.
