Balsamic and Dusseldorf Glazed Ham with Roasted Pearl Onions

Serving Size:Serves 8-10


  • 2 lbs Pearl Onions
  • 1 cup (packed) dark brown sugar
  • 5 Tablespoons Brennan's Chiles N Balsamic Vinegar
  • 3 Tablespoons Brennan's Dusseldorf Mustard
  • 1/4 cup butter, diced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Brennans own Balsamic Vinegar and Dusseldorf Mustard combine beautifully to make this delicious departure from the same-old baked ham recipe. Serve with South Island Sauvignon Blanc this Easter!


Cook onions in large pot of boiling salted water 2 minutes; drain. Trim root ends, leaving base intact. Peel. (Can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate.) Preheat oven to 325°F. Combine sugar, vinegar, and mustard in bowl for glaze.

Transfer onions to 11x7x2-inch glass baking dish. Add 2/3 cup glaze, butter, 1 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and 1/2 cup water; toss to coat. Cover with foil. 

Line large roasting pan with foil. Making 1/2-inch-deep slits, score ham with diamond pattern. Place ham in pan and roast 45 minutes. Place onions in oven. Roast ham and onions 25 minutes. Uncover onions. Continue roasting onions and ham 50 minutes. Baste ham with some of glaze. Continue to roast ham and onions until deep brown and glazed, brushing ham with glaze every 10 minutes, about 30 minutes longer. 

Transfer ham to large platter. Transfer onion mixture to bowl. Serve ham, passing onion mixture separately.
