Today I have to sickies laying on the couch home from school, so I’m thinking, it’s a bread baking day. I’ve been eyeballing this amazing looking Berry Mini Bread Loafs. So I think today I’m gonna finally get to make those since we’re home-bound today.
I made this for dinner last night though. It’s amazing!! You would think with the red pepper flakes and cayenne it would have a little kick to it, but not at all. It balances out the sweet honey glaze perfectly, giving it amazing flavor. I did have a problem with the amount of time it said to bake this for though. It says to bake for 1 hour, then 30 min., then another hour. That last hour, I only baked for 30 minutes and mine was done. So something to maybe keep in mind when your cooking.
I also change this a little bit. When applying the glaze before baking for the last time. I took about 2 or 3 tablespoons of brown sugar and rubbed it all over the glaze. This caused a little bit more of a crunch on the exterior of the ham from the melted sugar. I know that’s what I like, so do what your personal taste calls for. This recipe was amazing either way though, and a lot easier then I thought it would be. Enjoy 🙂
