There are many options for Christmas dinner -- prime rib, giant roasts, even Italian -- but if you want to make a whole table of hungry guests really happy, you had better glaze and bake a ham. Christmas ham is the answer to a happy holiday not only because it's delicious, but because the leftovers make for some of the best Christmas morning brunches ever.

Many folks opt to buy their baked ham already seasoned -- and that's fine -- but there are so many delicious ways to flavor this giant hunk of meat it's a shame to not give it a go. These are the recipes you need to get that done. Try it this year and you'll never go back to the store-bought option, we're sure of it.
