Slow Cooker Honey BBQ Ham

Slow Cooker Honey BBQ Ham

3 - 3 1/2 ham
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup barbecue sauce
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 (15 ounce) can pineapple rings, drained (optional)

In slow cooker sprayed with non-stick cooking spray, place ham.  In small bowl, combine honey, barbecue sauce and brown sugar.  Mix well. Pour mixture over ham.  Arrange pineapple over and around ham.  Cover.  Cook on low 4 to 5 hours for a fully cooked ham and 7 to 8 hours for an uncooked ham.
Ham is traditional for the Easter dinner, so that is what is on the menu at our house.  We love this recipe!  The ham is tender and juicy with a delicious sweet and tangy sauce.  I can put it in the slow cooker, go to church, and when I get home, I can have dinner on the table in a matter of minutes. 
This Easter I have two slow cookers doing the work for me.  In the first slow cooker is the ham of course, and in the second one is my Extra Cheesy Hash Browns.  I would typically serve my Mom's baked Mac & Cheese recipe, but our foreign exchange girls love the Hash Browns and asked me to fix that instead.

What are you cooking up for Easter Dinner?  
Does your family have special Easter holiday traditions?
I would love to hear about them!

Check back on next Tuesday and Friday
