I’ll say again and again… I love crockpot recipes. I mean, who doesn’t love a delicious meal you can throw in one pot ahead of time then just going about your day until it’s cooked and ready to go?! Seriously.

I highly recommend giving this honey dijon crockpot ham recipe a try. It’s sweet, it’s salty, and it’s INSANELY easy…you’re gonna love it!


Besides the ham, I bet you have all of these ingredients on hand already! This recipe is as simple as it gets!

  • Brown Sugar and Honey – the perfect combination of sweeteners to balance out the savory ham. Brown sugar adds a rich molasses flavor while the honey adds sweet, floral notes.
  • Unsalted Butter – helps keep the ham moist and adds a rich, buttery flavor.
  • Dijon Mustard – offsets the sweetness of the brown sugar and honey with its tangy, slightly spicy flavor.
  • Garlic – rounds out the other sweeter, spicier flavors with its nutty taste.
  • Ham – pre-cooked and boneless. You can either use whole or pre-sliced ham.
Pro tip
I’ve tried this recipe with pre-sliced and whole ham and it works great either way. As long as it’s pre-cooked and boneless you should be good to go!

How to make

I love this recipe because it takes 5 minutes to prep. Throw everything into your slow cooker then sit back and let it cook!

  1. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together brown sugar, honey, butter, dijon mustard, and garlic.butter/brown sugar/honey glaze in mixing bowl
  2. Place ham into a crockpot greased with cooking spray then pour the brown sugar mixture on top.glaze being poured over ham in crockpot

Pro tip
This makes a great, easy holiday meal. I love serving this for Easter and Christmas Eve! Bonus: the leftovers are great in my ham and cheese breakfast casserole for Easter and Christmas morning brunch!

What type of ham to use

Use a 4-6 pound boneless fully cooked ham. I’ve used both pre-sliced and non-sliced ham, so do whatever works best for you!

How to store

Leftover ham will last in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days or in the freezer for for 1-2 months.

To reheat, thaw in the fridge if frozen then microwave or place back in the crockpot to warm.
