Coca Cola Ham Recipe

© Peggy Trowbridge
Ham is cooked in cola and onions, then covered with a molasses mustard glaze and baked. This is a good option when you don't need a huge bone-in ham. It's quick and easy.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes


  • 3 to 4 pound boneless ham
  • 1 medium sweet onion, sliced into thin rings
  • 16 ounces Coca-Cola® or other cola
  • .
  • Glaze:
  • 1/8 (about) cup cloves
  • 1-1/2 Tablespoons molasses
  • 2 teaspoons mustard powder
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar


Place ham in a dutch oven. Place onions rings on top and around ham and pour cola over the top. Cover, leaving lid slightly ajar, and bring to a boil. Immediately lower heat to a low simmer and cook for 20 minutes. Turn ham over and cook an additional 20 minutes.

Remove from pot and reserve 2 tablespoons of the liquid. Let ham cool slightly, about 15 minutes and preheat oven to 500 degrees F. Line a baking pan with nonstick foil.

Place ham in prepared baking pan. Score the ham in a diamond pattern. Poke holes with a sharp knife in the center of each diamond and insert a clove.

For the glaze, combine 1/4 cup of the reserved cooking liquid, molasses, ground mustard powder, and brown sugar until smooth. Brush evenly over the top of the ham, taking care not to dislodge the cloves.

Bake about 10 minutes until glaze is bubbly and browned. Let rest 5 minutes before slicing to serve.

Yield: 6 to 8 servings
