OMG-SO-EZ Crock Pot Ham

Sometimes the easiest recipes are the most magical - and I love it when that happens. In this case - I owe a big thanks to 13 Canadian Cottage for the magic. 

This recipe could not be easier - it's dummy-proof. 3 ingredients, 1 crock pot, done. 

Crock pot - liner - brown sugar on the bottom. Ham on the sugar. Dump the pineapple (& juice) on the ham. Sprinkle more brown sugar on top. Cook for hours.

Boom. Done.

Seriously - stupid proof!

I made a couple baked potatoes with corn to go with it and it was delicious! The recipe called for bone-in but this was Easter...and I was shopping for my ham ON EASTER. (Yeah - I'm that girl) So - um - no bone-in ham for us. I went for one of the small pork shoulder butt (is it a shoulder or a butt?) hams and it was fine - especially for just the two of us.

Because my ham was smaller and no bone - I probably cooked it 4're really just getting it all heated through.

And yes - I will never make ham another way. Thanks again 13 Canadian Cottage.
