Ham Recipes That Take Easter To The Next Level

There are many festive sides you can make for an epic Easter feast. Spring is finally here, which means it's time to dig up those great spring recipes you've been waiting for all winter long. The possibilities are practically endless with all the amazing spring produce. For the main event, however, there's one obvious choice: a proper Easter ham. There aren't many days of the year that we can find a good reason to cook an entire leg of ham, so when that opportunity presents itself we think it wise to jump on it.

If you're not sure that Easter deserves the effort of a home-cooked ham, we found recipes that will help you change your mind. From spicy chile-brined hams to Asian-flavored hams to mustard-glazed hams, we've got so many good options that we might cook two for our holiday table.
