Spiced Baked Ham with Sweet Potatoes
Makes 8 servings

This is the way to go when you have a crowd of people over for Super Bowl, New Year's Day, or Easter Brunch. When you bake a ham like this, you can count on 10 to 15 minutes baking time per pound, but make sure your instant-read thermometer reaches an internal temperature of 170F to guarantee that the ham is baked through.


One 6- to 7-pound cooked, bone-in, butt portion ham
1 loosely packed cup dark brown sugar
3/4 cup fresh orange juice
3/4 cup Creole mustard or other spicy, whole-grained mustard
1/2 cup of dark molasses
3 tablespoons prepared horseradish
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice

For Potatoes:

7 small sweet potatoes (about 3 pounds), peeled
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
2 teaspoon dark brown sugar
