Ham is a staple at most Christmas lunches and we have developed a keto option that everyone will enjoy. We tested this out on non keto family members and it was a big hit, even if they put it on bread. We have used ingredients found easily in Australian supermarkets to make this recipe as Australian friendly as possible.
- The perfect centrepiece to your Christmas lunch table
- Leftovers. The great thing about having a glazed ham for Christmas is all the leftovers and being able to eat this for the next few days is an added bonus.
- You can always use some to create another awesome keto meal like a Fritatta.
Keto Maple Glazed Ham
Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
Combine all ingredients for the glaze in a bowl and stir until smooth.
Use a small sharp knife to score the skin of the ham around the small hock section. Then slowly peel the skin off by pushing your fingers between the skin and the fat and working your way around. Once the skin is completely removed score the fat with diagonal lines. Just be careful not to score too deep into the meat.
Brush the glaze over all the exposed fat on the ham leg and place in the oven for 20 minutes.
Remove the ham from the oven and baste with glaze and return to the oven for 10 minutes. Repeat glaze again and put in the oven for a further 10 minutes.
Baste for a final time, turn the oven up to 200 degrees celsius and cook for a further 5-10 minutes. Keep an eye on it as it may brown quickly.
Nutritional information for this recipe will be dependant on the type and size of the ham you use.
