Gammon Recipe

This quick, and easy perfect oven-roasted gammon recipe is a family favorite over Christmas. Gammon is always a top priority item on our shopping list at the end of November. I have found that it is one of the best times to buy a gammon. Not sure if it is my imagination, but I think the price of gammon gets inflated the close you come to Christmas. Mostly due to the popularity of gammon, I think.

We have a few gammon recipes in our family recipe book. There is a garden gammon casserole recipe, a fruity gammon recipe, then there is this oven-roasted gammon recipe with a honey-mustard glaze, which I am sharing now. I decided to use this glazed oven-roasted gammon recipe now because it is close to Christmas.

As I said, we have several items on the menu at Christmas. This gammon recipe is one of them, then we also serve this oven-roasted pork fillet. Both recipes are juice, tender and delicious, and both go well with this apple sauce on the side. Children also love this gammon, it is one of the first things they ask for form the Christmas buffet.

Another great thing about this gammon is that you can use the leftover gammon to create a pulled pork hamburger or delicious pulled pork sandwich. Nothing gets left behind.

We say thanks to you for being here and our hope is for you to enjoy this gammon recipe. Please tell us what you think if you have tried this gammon recipe.

Thanks, happy Christmas, and happy cooking.

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C
  2. Use a piece of foil, large enough to comfortably wrap the gammon, and lay the gammon in the center of the foil. Lift the sides of the foil. Sprinkle the white wine over the gammon. Wrap the gammon tightly in the foil and seal tightly to prevent the moisture from escaping. Bake for 45 minutes in the preheated oven
  3. In the meantime, add all the glaze ingredients together, and mix well. Microwave for 30 seconds on full power
  4. After the gammon has cooked, increase the oven temperature to 200°C. Remove the gammon from the oven and unwrap the foil. Create shallow, evenly distributed slits, in the top of the gammon using a sharp knife
  5. Do the same from different angles, to create criss-cross diamond-shaped patterns through the top of the gammon fat. Try not to pierce the skin
  6. Place the gammon in a deep roasting tin and place it on a rack in the middle of the oven. Stud the gammon with the cloves and brush with the glaze. Bake for a further 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool. Serve hot, or cold. Perfect for a picnic too.
