Why You’ll Love This Recipe
You will love this Savory Mustard Herb Ham because this is something different from the traditional honey baked or maple brown sugar ham! As someone who loves ham (and I emphasize love!), I really enjoyed making this take on easy sugar free baked ham!
I created this recipe for my friends at Organic Prairie using their Organic Bone in Ham, which is by far the best ham you can buy, in my opinion. Organic pork is very hard to buy, in general, but Organic Prairie offers the only organic pork I have seen and it’s amazing and so delicious!
I love baking ham for Easter because it is so easy. Organic Prairie’s Bone in Ham comes fully cooked, so all you have to do mix up this amazing spice rub and heat it up in the oven for a simple Easter dinner that is so good!
This amazing baked ham without sugar is an delicious main course to your holiday dinner. I am going to be making this ham along with my Roasted Rosemary Potatoes, Honey Butter Dinner Rolls, Roasted Veggies, and my Orange Blossom Honey Apple Pie for our Easter dinner this year!
How to Make Savory Mustard Herb Ham
Make sure your Organic Prairie Ham is thawed.
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Add the ham to a 5.5-quart Dutch oven or baking dish, cut side down. In a small dish, add the salt, pepper, parsley, and thyme and mix together. Set aside.
In another small dish, add the spicy brown mustard, apple cider vinegar, and garlic cloves. Stir together. Add in the spices and stir together.
Using your hands, rub the spice mix over the entire ham.
Cover the ham with foil lightly. Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until the internal temperature is 140°F.
Remove foil and turn oven to 400°F and bake for an additional 10 to 15 minutes, to brown the ham.
Ingredients for Savory Mustard Herb Ham
Frontier Co-Op Organic Dried Parsley

Organic Fresh Parsley (optional for serving, to make platter look pretty)
Organic Orange Slices (optional for serving, to make platter look pretty)
How do you thaw a frozen ham?
You can thaw your frozen ham in the refrigerator. The Organic Prairie Hams are all 5 pounds, and it takes about 4 to 6 hours per pound to thaw in the fridge. So, if you do the math, that is 20 to 24 hours to thaw. You can even put it in the fridge two to three days in advance to be safe (incase your fridge is over crowded like mine always is!). This will ensure it is defrosted.
Can I make this ahead of time?
Yes, if you want to prep and bake this ahead of time and reheat it the day of, you can do that. But I would recommend just doing it the day of as it’s so easy! It only takes about an hour in the oven so it’s really easy to have fresh baked ham in no time at all!
What can I make with leftover ham?
So many things! Ham is amazing in so many recipes, like my Ham & Veggie Scramble, Ham & Cheese Rolls with Honey Butter, or my Spinach Ham & Cheese Quiche! Make ham sandwiches, add ham to your grilled cheese, or eat it with breakfast in place of bacon or sausage!
Why go organic?
You may be wondering why I push organic ingredients for everything, even savory and healthy dishes. Organic ingredients go beyond just health and wellness, and contribute so much to the taste and flavor of a recipe. So, if you think that you’re making something healthy and buying fruits, veggies, or meats so maybe you don’t need to spend the extra to go organic here – let me sway your thinking.
Organic ingredients are made in a more pure way, therefore using no additives, no GMOs, and minimal ingredients. This really allows the true ingredients to shine – and because of that their flavor shines through. Therefore, organic ingredients are more flavorful than their non organic counterparts. So, just because it’s already a healthy recipe, or you’re already buying good for you ingredients – it doesn’t mean you can skip organic! Trust me here, and make the switch. Your body and your taste buds will thank you!
So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.
