  • Using a basting brush, cover the ham with the butter mixture.
  • Roast the ham at 400 degrees covered in foil for 40 minutes, the last 10 minutes uncover ham until done cooking. The outside should be slightly caramelized giving it that great sweet flavor.

This Cheese Stuffed Honey Baked Ham is a one hit wonder.  The addition of the cheese is really what takes it over the top.  The salty and creaminess of the cheese goes so well with the sweetness of the honey butter combination.  Why havarti cheese you ask?   It has a buttery yet lightly sweetened flavor that compliments the ham and also gives it a buttery texture.

How do you make Cheese Stuffed Honey Baked Ham?

This Ham is really very easy to make so lets get started.

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and prepare a rimmed sheet pan and place two pieces of foil over the pan, one horizontally and one vertically.
  2. Place ham on a cutting board and cut into 6 slices, without cutting all the way through to the bottom.  Place ham in the center of the sheet pan on the foil and put one piece of cheese in each cut.
  3. In a small bowl whisk together melted butter, honey, mustard, pepper, and garlic salt.  Brush mixture all over ham until well coated and tightly seal by pulling up all four sides of the foil and tightly covering the ham completely.  Roast for 20 minutes. With the remaining butter mixture toss the vegetables and potatoes and add them around the ham and roast an additional 20 minutes, uncover the ham the last 10 minutes of cooking.  Cut the slices all the way through and serve warm.

Rather than using havarti cheese you can use cheddar, swiss, or mozzarella cheese.  In addition to the cheese you can also add a little heat with sliced jalapeños or even a spicy or sharp flavored cheese.  Either way you will make one delicious ham that will make any occasion a sensational occasion.
