Grilled Ham Slices

Works for Me Wednesday day is hosting a recipe edition.  You can’t go wrong with summer recipes.  We eat LOTS of fresh watermelon, blueberries, corn on the cob and use the grill a lot during the summer.  So I thougtht I would share my all time favorite grilling recipe!

It’s for grilled ham slices, it’s E-A-S-Y and so distinctly yummy!  This recipe on it’s own is famous, it appeared in  Taste of Home magazine  and made the 2008 Taste of Home cookbook.  And where did I come up with such a great recipe……where else, but from my mom!!!  🙂


~Grilled Ham Slices ~

Marinade 3 bone in fully cooked ham steaks ( or if you buy a small ham, you can slice it and use it in this marinade)

1 1/2 cups orange juice

1/2 c. cider vinegar

1-2 tablespoons of ground cloves

1 tablespoons of molasses

2-3 tablespoons of ground mustard

2-3 tablespoons ground ginger

Combine the first seven ingredients in a small bowl.  Add marinade into a large resealable plastic bag.  Add ham. Seal bag, turn to coat.  Refrigerate 1-2 hours.

Grill ham steaks 8-12 minutes until heated through.  Baste frequently with remaining marinade.


Also, just posted yestereday on great summer activities for kids, Click Here to see the post for pratical, fun ideas.  I am a teacher so sorry if they actually include a little learning in the fun!  Imagine that!!  🙂


  1. YUM! We love ham, but usually only eat it for holidays since we’re so busy. I just don’t have enough time to fix an entire ham, but I love this recipe!! It’s manageable and looks fantastic! Thanks for sharing!!

  2. yum I love ham… I am going to check what ingredients we already have…

    I get to go out for dinner tonight…so maybe tomorrow!

  3. Here is a good tip for this recipe, just replace the ham by some jamon iberico de bellota, in case you do not know it this is probably the best ham in the world, it is extremely tasty and healthy (no cholesterol), it comes from a particular breed of swine only found in Spain and Portugal. While it is a bit pricey, the results on the recipe are just amazing. If you want to keep it low budget, buy some Serrano ham which is also great.
    I always buy my iberico ham online at as it is fresh and delivered to your door. the market place for iberico ham.
