Low Carb Roasted Ham

Do you need a delicious low carb, trim healthy mama s ham recipe that everyone will love?

Look no farther, this will be the one you need to make. This turns out perfect. I have made this in a pressure cooker and in a roaster. Both are super easy and delicious. I use a fully cooked spiral sliced ham. When my Aldi has them really cheap, I try to buy two. I like to make one for a special Sunday dinner and have people over. It never fails and everyone loves the recipe, sugar eaters and non-sugar eaters alike.

This recipe as written is mildly spiced.

I don’t like to have a bunch of spice flavor when I eat ham. I like just enough that I taste it but I also want to taste the ham. Throw away the glaze that comes with the ham. You are going to make your own so it’s sugar-free You can add a little ground cloves if you want to increase the spice flavor.. I use brown sugar Swerve for my sweetener. If you don’t have a brown sugar substitute, you can add a little molasses to your sweetener and stir until it is mixed through. The last time I made this I didn’t have quite enough swerve sweetener so I added a 2-3 drops of blackstrap molasses and it turned out great!! I also used a roaster the last time I made this ham. If you use an oven, cover the ham with a foil tent. Also, if you don’t have a glazing brush, you can use a spoon to put the glaze on the ham.

  • 1/2 C Water
  • 1/4 C Dijon Mustard
  • 1 C Brown Sugar Substitute
  • 2 T Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 t Cinnamon
  • 1/2 t Nutmeg
  • 1/2 t Ginger


  • Combine all of the glaze ingredients in a small saucepan (not too small or it will boil over.
  • Cook and stir over medium heat until the sugar substitute dissolves.
  • If you are using a roaster, place a rack inside. Set the temperature to 375 degrees. Place your ham inside the roaster. Brush on some of the glaze. Place the lid on top. Every 5 minutes remove the lid and brush the glaze on all of the ham you can reach. Repeat this until the glaze has been used up. When your ham has reached 110 degrees, approximately 10-14 minutes per pound. Remove from the roaster and allow to rest for about 10-15 minutes.
