BAKED PETIT JEAN HAM
Unwrap the ham and read the cooking instructions. It will tell you how long they suggest you cook it to heat it through, the baking temperature, and how much the ham weighs.
Remove the plastic disc covering the bone (you might not see it at first).
Place the ham cut side down in a roasting pan with a rack. I call it “face down”, but hams don’t really have faces… You can use a casserole dish if you don’t have a roasting pan, but I like the way it turns out better in a pan with a rack.
Cover the pan tightly with aluminum foil.
Cook at 325 for 10-12 minutes per pound (the pounds will be listed on the tag on the packaging, as well as exactly how long you should cook it per pound), so you’ll end up cooking it for an hour and a half or so.
Let the ham rest for 10-20 minutes. A spiral cut ham is already sliced, so it’s easy to serve
