|A poor photo of Baked Ham Slices with Pineapple|
Mr. Big Food is a meal-planning genius. The baked ham was paired with Carrots au Gratin, which bake for just 10-15 minutes at a higher oven temperature. The ham goes in, it comes out, the carrots go in, they come out, we eat. This– like Sunday’s Oven Meal and Monday’s Slow Cooker Soup— is genius because it means we can spend some quality time together! (Not that cooking together isn’t quality time, but it is nice to sit down together.) You can take “we” to mean any combination of Farm mammals you’d like.
Mr. Big Food made some minor adjustments to the recipe:
I used less brown sugar than the actual recipe calls for, and mixed it with the drained crushed pineapple before spreading on the layers of ham slices.
BAKED HAM SLICES WITH PINEAPPLE
2 ham slices, 1 inch thick
2 C crushed pineapple, drained
½ C brown sugar
Preheat oven to 325o. Place 1 slice ham in bottom of a baking dish. Spread with 1 C crushed pineapple. Top with other ham slice and spread with remaining pineapple. Sprinkle brown sugar over all. Bake 1 hour.
