How To Cook Ham In A Rival’s Electric Roaster?
Here are simple step-by-step instructions for making my maple-coated ham:
- To start, fill the bottom of the electric grill with 2-4 cups of water. Fill the grill with enough water to cover the bottom to a depth of about 1/4 inch. Inside, put a roasting rack.
- Place several sheets of aluminum foil on a table or work surface, overlapping to prevent ham juice from leaking between the sheets. Heavy duty foil should be used. Sufficient foil should be used to completely cover the ham. If you are using standard tinfoil, you may need three sheets. 2 large large sheets of foil will suffice if you have one.
- Carefully remove the ham from its packaging. If any juice collects in the container, save it to pour back into the ham before baking.
- Place the ham on its side, cut face up, with the sliced side facing you. It’s very important that several layers of glaze slip between the ham slices for a more savory bite as you pour.
- Wrap the foil around the ham, leaving the top exposed. Place the ham on the roasting rack of the grill.
- After that, place the thermometer probe in the center of the ham. Make sure the probe is not in contact with the bone.
- If any liquid remains from the package, pour it over the ham. Wrap the ham snugly in the foil, but leave it loose enough to open later to pour over the glaze.
- Make sure the electric grill cover is firmly attached. Because the probe thermometer wire is small and flexible, you can still close the lid. Preheat oven to 275 degrees Fahrenheit. Set the thermometer to 140 degrees F to warn you when the ham is done.
- The ham will take 15-20 minutes per pound to heat once the oven reaches 275 degrees. It takes a little over 2 hours to cook an eight-pound ham.
- Time your ham to cook about half an hour before you plan to serve it. It’s okay to heat the ham for up to two hours, but it will dry out. Make sure it is well protected.
In an electric grill, how do you cook a fully cooked ham
To cook cooked ham in an electric grill, trim off most of the fat and make a glaze to use twice during the cooking time. Bake for two hours at 325 degrees Fahrenheit or until the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees Fahrenheit.
Did you put water in the bottom of the ham roasting pan
- Place the fat side of the ham on a shallow baking sheet after trimming the skin and some of the fat. Half the ham should be placed with the cut side on the baking sheet.
- Fill the roasting pan with one cup of water.
- Cover with foil to keep it in place. Place in the preheated oven and bake for 30 minutes (see Time and Temperature Chart below).
- Bake until the internal temperature reaches 135 degrees Fahrenheit. Allow 15 minutes for the ham to rest before cutting. During this time, the temperature inside should reach 140 degrees Fahrenheit.
- If you are using glaze, do so within the last 30 minutes of cooking. For more information, see Glass.
In a roasting pan, how do you cook ham
Covering the ham in the glaze and grilling it in a roasting pan is a great way to keep it moist and delicious. Some people may suggest using a slow cooker, but spiral ham is not suitable for a slow cooker.
To get started, double check that your toaster oven is large enough. I have an Oster electric toaster oven with a capacity of 20 liters. It’s ideal for this. Any size roasting oven will suffice, as long as it’s big enough to hold the ham without touching the sides.
Then, at the bottom of the roasting pan, place the rack that came with the toaster oven. No need to add any liquid. If too much liquid is added, the ham will be boiled rather than roasted.
Remove the spiral-cut ham from the package and drain the remaining liquid. Spray the disposable pan with cooking spray afterwards. Place the ham in the bottom of the disposable pan, flat side down or “face edge” down. The flatter side of the ham is below in this photo, making the face visible.
Half of the glaze should be applied to the entire ham. Let the glaze soak in between the slices as you gently separate them. If you peel the strips too much, the spiral ham will lose its firm appearance.
Place the disposable pan on the roasting rack. Preheat oven to 250F and cook ham, covered, for 12-15 minutes per pound, or until internal temperature reaches 140-145F. A digital meat thermometer in the thickest part of the ham is a great way to check.
Pour in the remaining juice from the ham once it is completely warm. Then, using the remaining ham glaze, scrape off the outer layer. Return the ham to the grill, cover, and set aside for 20 minutes to rest.
Optional, but highly recommended: Bake until brown and crispy, like honey-roasted ham, in a disposable pan on the middle rack of a standard oven (make sure to support the bottom). Or, if you have a cooking torch, use it to carefully caramelize the edges of the ham.
Did you wrap the spiral ham in foil
Spiral-cut hams usually weigh between 8 and 11 pounds and are pre-cooked (make sure your package says pre-cooked). This means that when cooking ham, all you need to do is heat it. The easiest way to do this is to cook it at a low temperature so that the outside doesn’t dry out before the inside is heated.
Use a meat thermometer to reach 140 degrees Fahrenheit and don’t overcook the spiral ham to prevent it from drying out. I usually take it out around 135F and monitor the temperature with a thermometer until it reaches 140F.
The length of time it will take to cook spiral ham depends on its size, but plan for about 13-16 minutes per pound at 250F, uncovered. If your ham cooks early, remove it from the oven and set it aside to cool slightly to prevent it from overcooking. Cover with foil once it has cooled a bit and wait for it to cut until ready to serve.
Glass Spiral Ham
If you’re coating your ham, such as when making a homemade honey-roasted ham replica, do so at the end so it doesn’t burn. I always opt for a simple homemade glaze over the glaze that comes with my ham.
Just apply for the last 20 minutes of cooking. To make the glaze nice and sticky, I occasionally turn on the oven or place it under the broiler for a few minutes.

What’s the best way to cook a ten pound ham
Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. In a shallow roasting pan, place the ham on a rack. Allow 18 to 20 minutes per pound for a full 10 to 15 pound ham; 20 minutes per pound for half 57 pounds; or 35 minutes per pound for 34-pound calves or buttocks. Cook uncovered until the internal temperature reaches 160F under all circumstances. Remove the ham from the oven about 30 minutes before cooking and glaze as suggested below for an attractive, quick finish.
How long does it take to fully cook spiral ham
- This ham is very cold, but the packaging includes instructions for reheating it. Place the chopped ham on heavy-duty aluminum foil and wrap tightly. Alternatively, use an oven toaster bag and prepare according to the bag’s instructions. Bake for 10-14 minutes per pound in the preheated 325F oven, or until the meat thermometer reaches 140F. 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. Let it rest for 10 minutes before slicing to serve. It has a wonderful sweet taste and an ideal texture.
What’s the best way to cook thoroughly cooked ham
This ham is very cold, but the instructions for heating it are usually on the package. Place the chopped ham on heavy-duty aluminum foil and wrap tightly. Alternatively, use an oven toaster bag and prepare according to the bag’s instructions. Bake for 10-14 minutes per pound in the preheated 325F oven, or until the meat thermometer reaches 135F. Before serving, remove from oven and let rest for 10 minutes. If the ham came with an extra glaze, add it and cook according to 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. Let it rest for 10 minutes before slicing to serve.
Is it necessary to fill the bottom of the electric grill with water
Electric toaster ovens take advantage of this ability by evenly distributing heat and liquids to cook dishes. No additional water or other liquids are required unless specified in the recipe because the closed grill captures and recycles moisture from food as it cooks.
Is it better to bake ham fat side up or fat side down
- Preheat oven to 275 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Remove the ham from its packaging and place it in a shallow roasting pan.
- Half and quarter ham should be cooked evenly (face down). Cook the whole ham with the fat side up.
- The aluminum foil should be wrapped tightly around the pan.
- Bake at 275F for 15 minutes per pound, or until cooked through (see chart).
- Make sure you don’t overcook! Remove the ham from the oven and set aside for 20 to 30 minutes before serving.
If you want to add glass, follow the additional glass instructions. And, to make sure your ham is roasted to perfection, use this handy formula to determine cooking times based on the size and weight of your ham. It’s very important not to overcook the ham in the oven, or it will become dry instead of runny. So watch the video, double-check your chart, and serve up an amazing spiral-sliced ham every time.
