Maple Dijon Brown Sugar Ham Glaze

This Easter, I made an impromptu dinner. Originally we had planned on eating dinner at our dear friends house, but our daughter had other plans! When she woke up with a nasty cough and an elevated temp on this snowy Easter day, we decided it was best we kept her home. Therefore, I was left to make an impromptu dinner. Luckily, I was had one dish down since I had already made this Potluck Broccoli Salad the previous day. Therefore, all I had left was the ham and potatoes! That I can do!!!

So, off to the grocery store I went and found a pre-baked, pre-sliced ham. I threw that bad boy in the oven and whipped together this Maple Dijon Brown Sugar glaze. Dinner turned out divine!
