Ingredients and Variations

Ham – Look for a fully cooked ham (most already are) that’s about 3 pounds total or the size that will fit in your model of Air Fryer.

Glaze – This sweet and tangy glaze is made with four ingredients that are likely already in the kitchen! Orange juice helps tenderize the ham while the honey, brown sugar, and Dijon mustard bake into a thick glaze.

Variations – Pineapple juice can be used instead of orange juice and maple syrup is a good switch for the honey as both will make a thick glaze over the ham. Add a touch of savory spices like nutmeg, ginger, or cloves for a more holiday flavor.

How to Make Honey Glazed Air Fryer Ham

  1. Preheat the air fryer.
  2. Wrap the ham in foil and cook (per the recipe below).
  3. As the ham is cooking, prepare the glaze.
  4. Brush the glaze over the ham and cook until the inner temp reads 135°F.
  5. Open the foil and let the ham cook until the glaze is browned.
