We are making this for Easter dinner, and I am already looking forward to it. This ham is so delicious, sweet and savory.
The pineapple cooking between every few pieces will have your taste buds dancing. This is way easier to cook for crowds, and the presentation is a lot nicer than a pile of meat on a platter.
So if you have guests this year, give this Ham and Pine Bake a try. Happy Easter!
This recipe is so easy and only takes a few ingredients to make. The glaze that goes over the ham and pineapple adds a sweetness to the savory meat.
How to make your presentation perfect
This is perfect dish when you are going for presentation. Every piece get’s some of the pineapple juice and looks moist and beautiful. This will definitely wow your guests.
–Garnish: The cracked pepper against the pineapple and ham is the perfect way to make this dish pop, and have the flavor explode.
If you are going for a sweeter taste, you could also garnish with a drizzle of honey. I have garnished this dish with brown sugar as well.
If you want a pop of color, you could also use a few scattered leaves or sprigs of chopped parsley. I would also pair the parsley with fresh cracked pepper.
–Layering: Stacking the ham and the pineapple is what will make this presentation beautiful. I did one half pineapple slice for every two ham slices.
As I layered, I would start with a ham layer all along the pan, from one end to the other. Then on the seams of the ham, I would place a pineapple.
Did you ever have a choir class or family picture where you had to find your window between heads? That’s exactly how you layer this dish. Make sure that the pineapple isn’t laying on each separate piece of ham, but in the middle of two ham slices, to show both the pineapple and ham.

how to make Ham and pine bake
Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Step 2: Carve the ham into pieces as you would when you normally carve your ham. We used a cured ham for this recipe, which means that ham is cooked. We have never made this recipe with a ham that has not been cooked or cured.
Step 3: Cut the pineapple slices in half.
Step 4: Spray a 9 x 13 inch pan with non stick cooking spray.
Step 5: Place the ham and pineapple slices in a row, in the pan. I did every 2 or 3 slices of ham to 1 slice of pineapple.
Step 6: In a bowl, mix the brown sugar, honey, water, cinnamon, nutmeg and pineapple juice until fully combined.
Step 7: Pour the mixture over the ham and pineapple.
Step 8: Cover the pan with foil, place in oven and bake for 40 minutes or until ham and pineapple are hot.
