Food trends come and go, but having this main course centerpiece never goes out of style. Whether you are serving brunch, lunch, or a traditional sit-down dinner—a Heavenly Ham from Dorothy Lane Market is simply delicious.
During my childhood, the ham was a must-have at family celebrations. At Christmas, we ate it with cherry sauce. For Easter, we decorated it with maraschino cherries and pineapple rings. For dad’s birthday, mom let me stand on the kitchen stool and stick cloves into it. The beauty of the Heavenly Ham® is that it’s ready to rock as-is with or without the accouterments.
Even if you’re serving prime rib, this classic will give your holiday meal-planning a serious boost. Pull it out at breakfast. For lunch, nothing beats a Heavenly Ham® sandwich along with a few Deli salads, like our Classic Potato or Homestyle Macaroni. As a cook with a lot on her plate, the best part for me is the stress-free pleasure of a Heavenly Ham®.
HOW TO ORDER YOUR HEAVENLY HAM
When choosing a Heavenly Ham®, we suggest to plan on 1/2 to 3/4 lbs per person. Although we carry Heavenly Ham® in stores, it’s such a hit that it flies off the shelves. To ensure one at your store of choice, reserve your ham in our Meat department or online!
HEAVENLY HAM SERVING TIPS
Serve at room temperature or heat by placing it, with the foil slightly opened at the top, in a 250°F oven for 45 minutes to one hour. If only a few slices are needed, heat them in a skillet for 2-3 minutes. To carve, use a sharp knife to make a lengthwise cross across the ham next to the bone (for a whole ham, start at the butt end). This cut releases the spiral-cut slices. To release remaining slices, loosen meat from bone.
