How to make Keto Glazed Ham
Step by Step Instructions
STEP 1: Preheat the oven to 350°F. Trim the rind off the ham, leaving the fat layer in tact. Score the fat in a criss-cross pattern, cutting deeply into the fat, but not through to the flesh beneath. Place the ham into a baking tray and add the water to the bottom.
STEP 2: Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes.
STEP 3: While the ham is in the oven, heat a small saucepan over medium-high heat and add the sweetener, butter, sweetener, molasses, dijon, and spices.
STEP 4: Stir constantly until the sweetener is dissolved. Stir constantly until the sweetener is dissolved and the glaze has thickened.
STEP 5: Increase the oven temperature to 425°F. Brush ⅓ of the glaze over the ham and return to the oven, uncovered for 15 minutes. Brush on another ⅓ of the glaze and return to the oven for 15 more minutes. Brush on the remaining ⅓ of the glaze and cook for a final 15 minutes. After removing the ham for the over the final time, rest for 15 minutes before slicing.
Frequently Asked Questions
First, you’ll want to remove the rind from the ham so that the fat is exposed. Next, score your ham: just make shallow cuts in a diamond pattern across the fat. Scoring the ham insures that the glaze can soak in and bring the flavor to a deeper level. Then, you’ll bake your ham covered at 350°F for 30 minutes in a baking tray with a bit of water at the bottom.
If you’re anxious about the sugar in the molasses, you should know that 2 tablespoons contain 30g total carbs, adding 3 grams of carbs per serving. This brings the ham to only 3.8g of carbs per serving

A sugar glaze doesn’t exactly sound keto friendly, but when you make it with brown sugar erythritol or golden monk fruit sweetener and just a little bit of molasses, it’s completely possible.
