Brown Sugar Baked Ham and Parmesan Asparagus Recipes

I was afraid we weren't going to have ham this Easter, but we managed it. I just LOVE a good smoked ham!

1 semi boneless ham (or whatever kind you like)
1/2 cup packed brown sugar, or as needed to cover ham
1 cup orange juice plus 1 cup water

Preheat the oven to 350°.

Place ham in a roasting pan on a rack. Score the top lightly. Press brown sugar all over ham. Add juice and water mixture to  bottom of pan. Cover pan tightly with aluminum foil.

Bake 2 hours or as directed on ham package, basting ham about every 20 minutes or so. Let stand lightly covered with foil for about 15 minutes before slicing and serving.

While the ham rested, I started the asparagus:

Parmesan Asparagus
2 bundles fresh asparagus, ends trimmed
olive oil
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan
fresh lemon juice, to taste

Preheat oven to 400°.

Lay asparagus in a single layer on a baking pan and drizzle with oil. Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Roast for 10-12 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese and bake another 3-5 minutes or til cheese is melted and asparagus is crisp tender.

Serve drizzled with lemon juice.

I served the sliced ham with horseradish sauce, garlic pull apart rolls and the asparagus.
