Air Fryer Hasselback Ham for Friendsgiving

This post is sponsored by Smithfield. All opinions are my own.

I'm so excited for the holidays! The thing is I really don't have much family - but I have lots of friends! So I like to get together with friends as much as possible and a great way to do that is to invite them over for dinner - 
But let's get real - I work 45 minutes from home - so cooking a big fancy dinner on a weeknight is not fun! Thankfully I have my trust air fryer and Smithfield Anytime Favorites Sliced Ham and that means a quick and easy dinner! 

Can you air fry ham? 

Yes! Smithfield Anytime Favorites Quarter Ham is pre-cooked so all you have to do is reheat and the air fryer is perfect for that! I made a foil "bowl" in my air fryer basket and loaded it with ham, pineapple, Brussels sprouts and sweet potatoes. Air fry at a lower heat for 30 minutes and you're good to go! I did start the veggies & potatoes a little early because they take longer than the ham. 

It was so easy to air fry this sliced quarter ham because the Smithfield Anytime Favorites are ready-to-eat so I just had to heat it up. I did fancy it up a bit by giving it a Hasselback treatment - you know those fun Hasselback potatoes where they put fun stuff between each slice of potato? Well I did that with the Smithfield Ham! I put pineapple and brown sugar between each slice! Yum! 

The thing I like about Smithfield Anytime Favorites are that they're pre-cooked and ready to eat or heat up in things like this great air fryer ham dinner or even things like omelettes, pizzas and more. Plus they come in a variety of cuts like this Quarter Ham as well as diced, cubed and ham steaks! 

And - if you're wondering - you can find Smithfield Anytime Favorites in the packaged meat section of the store (you know - near where the bacon is!!). 

I added sweet potato and Brussels sprouts to this air fryer ham to round out the meal - but you can always grab some of my other super simple holiday side dishes! Some of my favorites are fresh creamed corn - omg - so much better than canned and I also love these cheesy bacon pullaparts - they are rolls but better!! And you can't have a holiday meal without my Mom's secret ingredient pumpkin pie
