A Pleasant Little Announcement | Good Morning Texas and Three Easter Ham Recipes

A busy week is ahead of boiling and dying eggs, preparing a celebratory menu and making family plans. Easter is in seven days.Tomorrow on Good Morning Texas, I get to demonstrate how to make three sauces that are full of flavor, easy to prep and make-ahead friendly that can be used to dress-up the prized Easter ham (to watch the segment click here).

The beauty of centering the family meal around ham is that little cooking is involved. Pick up a pre-smoked spiral cut ham at your local grocer or butcher, then once home gently heat in the oven until the ham is warmed through. Remove the ham from the oven and then cover with your favorite sauce or serve on the side. If you plan to serve all three sauces cut the ham into three portions and place on different platters.

Be sure to tune in to WFAA’s Good Morning Texas at 9 am to see me whip up these delicious homemade sauces that will make this year’s Easter meal a little more pleasant.
