A few tips when making keto Crockpot ham:
- If you choose a boneless ham as I did, I suggest you slice the ham halfway down the middle to create pre-sliced ham so the glaze will get in between each slice.
- This is a slow cooker recipe, but if you’re wanting to cook your ham in the oven instead, then simply roast at 325 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes. This timing is based on a 7 lb. ham.
- “How did you get the top so crispy?!” Glad you asked! One of my new favorite gadgets is my kitchen blow torch. Once the ham is finished and plated, I simply take the sauce and drizzle it over the ham, then grab the torch to crisp up the edges. It would make a great gift for someone who loves to experiment in the kitchen, too!
This keto slow cooker glazed ham is a huge hit!
My favorite part is having leftovers to nibble on for a few days after! 😋
I love using slices in either our keto ham & cheese biscuits or out-of-this-world keto ham & cheese sliders!
My Hip sidekick Jenna gave this recipe a try and here’s what she thought:
“This keto ham really brought the flavor! My whole house smelled amazing while it was cooking, and my kids kept asking when the ham would be done. Keto or not, this glaze is tops and would be perfect to add to your Easter menu!”
Make this keto green bean casserole as a yummy side dish!
Would a spiral cut half a ham work just as well? I’m Thinking it would….this sounds so good!
Hi there! I am sure it would work, although we haven’t tried it. I would obviously just toss the seasoning packet that usually comes with it. Hope this helps❤
Thank you!! Excited to try it! 🤗❤️
How did the carbs get up to 17.6?
Hey JW! The total carb count comes mostly from the Swerve. With 13.3g sugar alcohols from the Swerve, it drops this recipe down to 3.3g net carbs. Hoping this is helpful! ❤️
