 Horseradish Panko Crusted Ham with Horseradish Mustard Sauce Low Calorie Low Fat Dinner Recipe

Have I ever told you how much I love ham? It is my go to meat for sandwiches. I know, I know, turkey is a little lower calorie and fat. I do like turkey; especially when my husband smokes a turkey breast for sandwiches, but I l-o-v-e ham. Baking a ham is also a fabulous way to feed a crowd. It is super easy, not just easy, but super easy! This time I decided to do something totally different, and give it a crust. Oh boy, was I ever rewarded. My husband declared that Horseradish Panko Crusted Ham was the best ham ever, hehe, best ever. That is high praise from him. I served it with a delicious and lower fat Horseradish Mustard Yogurt Sauce. It is a marriage made in heaven.

A ham is actually our News Years Day tradition. We always have Prime Rib for Christmas. You can find my recipe for Prime Rib here.  New Years always reminds me of my Great Grandmother.  When I was little, the entire family would congregate at her house for New Years Day.  I don’t remember having ham, but I do remember having Macaroni and Cheese.  What I really remember is playing in her tiny room with my cousins.  I am the oldest great-grandchild of 12.  When Nannie, that was what we all called her, was alive, there were six of us.  The rest had yet to be born.  We would totally trash her room and get in so much trouble.  We did it every year though.  We would start at the door, run and jump onto her bed to slide on the comforter onto the floor taking her comforter with us.  Then everyone would pile one whoever was on the bottom.  There would be lots of laughter and giggling.  Then quiet as we heard one of the parents coming to yell at us to stop.  Nannie never cared.  She would stick up for us and tell them we were fine.  She just loved having all her family around.  I hope to bring a lightened Macaroni & Cheese recipe to you in January in her honor.  You can read more about Nannie and her infamous Clam Dip in my post about Pumpkin Cookies with Buttercream Frosting.

 

Horseradish Panko Crusted Ham with Horseradish Mustard Sauce Low Calorie Low Fat Dinner Recipe

We have since moved and don’t live near my cousins. I miss those family times and feel bad that my daughter doesn’t have any of those memories. Her cousins live in Singapore, so she sees them every few years. Luckily my parents, her grandparents, live just 15 minutes away ,so she has a wonderful relationship with them. My husband’s parent’s live in Singapore along with her Aunts and Uncles. We are extremely blessed to have family that we chose though. My husband’s cousin’s cousin (Did you follow that?), live about an hour from us. We considered her two kids, Lyla’s cousins. She gets to see them more regularly and just adores them.

I actually didn’t grow up around my family either. My Dad joined the Air Force after I was born. He needed a way to support his family, and we moved when I was three. From that time on, I was in and out of my family’s life. I always looked forward to going to visit and all the fun family times. When I was 12 years old, we moved back to New Jersey and family. For two years, we saw each other every week. I have so many wonderful memories of that time, playing with all my cousins. So there is still time for Lyla to have memories with her cousins. Of course, we would probably have to move to Singapore, and I can’t quite see that happening.

Do the holidays bring back happy childhood memories? What are some of your favorite? What food do you celebrate with? I hope you are writing down all those wonderful family recipes. They are a treasure trove.

Be sure to come back Tuesday for a breakfast recipe fashioned after one of my favorite desserts!

  1. My family loves ham and horseradish, definitely will be ther hero when I make this recipe!
  2. Christie, Looks delicious, but I'm a little confused (I've never cooked a ham - not in my family's tradition:) Is the ham fully cooked before you bake it for 1 1/2 hours?
    • Christie Daruwalla says
      Hi Laura, Yes, the ham that you buy is already fully cooked. It takes a long time to reheat though. Happy Healthy Eating, Christie
  3. I LOVE this! I adore horseradish and while I'm not a huge fan of ham too often b/c it's so salty I bet this is the perfect way to balance that out. So original!
  4. Linda Leone says
    This recipe looks interesting, but I'm a little confused, what are the sauce ingredients? They aren't listed. Did I miss something? Thanks for your help with this.
    • Christie Daruwalla says
      Hi Linda, Thank you so much for catching that. I've fixed the recipe so the ingredients show. Happy Healthy Eating, Christie
