Emeril Lagasse serves up the main course as we continue our special holiday entertaining series. His Spiced Holiday Ham with Potatoes will please your whole party.

When you bake a ham like this, you can count on about 10 to 15 minutes baking time per pound, but make sure your instant read thermometer reaches an internal temperature of 170 degrees to guarantee that the ham is baked through. Not only is this good straight out of the oven, the ham makes amazing sandwiches the next day.

Ingredients

  • Ham
  • One Ham (cooked, bone-in, butt portion - 6 to 7 pounds)
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar, loosely packed
  • 3/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 3/4 cup Creole mustard (or other spicy, whole-grained mustard)
  • 1/2 cup dark molasses
  • 3 tablespoons horseradish
  • 1/2 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
  • Potatoes
  • 7 small sweet potatoes (about 3 pounds), peeled
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon allspice
  • 2 teaspoons dark brown sugar
  • Cooking Directions

    Ham

    Rinse the ham under cold running water. Pat dry and place on a work surface.

    With a sharp knife, score parallel lines, 1-inch apart and 1/4-inch deep, across the rounded, skin side of the ham. Turn the ham 180 degrees and score in a similar fashion to create a grid pattern across the ham. Put the ham in a two-gallon plastic storage bag.

    Combine the remaining ingredients in a large mixing bowl, whisking to mix. Pour the mixture into the bag with the ham and seal. Gently squeeze the bag to evenly distribute the marinade around the ham. Refrigerate for 24 hours. Preheat the oven to 350.

    Potatoes

    Cut the potatoes in quarters lengthwise and put in a large mixing bowl. Toss with the vegetable oil, salt, cinnamon, allspice, and the sugar.

    Arrange the potatoes in a layer on the bottom of a large roasting pan. Remove the ham from the bag and reserve the marinade. Set the ham, scored side up, on top of the potatoes. Bake for 45 minutes.
