Top Rated Ham Recipes

To turn a ham and cheese into a bistro-ready Croque Monsieur, bring 1 cup of whole milk to a simmer in a saucepot. Mix together 1 tablespoon softened unsalted butter and 1 tablespoon flour to create a paste, and then whisk into the hot milk. Continue whisking until thickened, about 10 minutes, over medium heat. Season with salt and nutmeg. Pour a little béchamel over each sandwich, and top with more grated Gruyère. Broil until the top is bubbly and browned.

Boiled Ham
“In choosing a ham, ascertain that it is perfectly sweet, by running a sharp knife into it, close to the bone; and if, when the knife is withdrawn, it has an agreeable smell, the ham is good; if, on the contrary, the blade has a greasy appearance and offensive smell, the ham is bad.” — Mrs. Beeton's Book of Household Management This recipe, written in 1861, may seem antiquated, but it is a throwback to the Edwardian and Victorian eras. It was a typical main course served at dinner parties; stewed beef was also a popular centerpiece.

When my uncle sent me this recipe with no measurements, his argument was that he was "an artist, not a chef." True, but seeing as I wanted to make sure his delicious ham was replicated perfectly every time, I sought out the help of chef and owner Steve Waxman, of Trax Restaurant & Café. With the foundations of my uncle's recipe and the help of Waxman, this holiday ham is, I have to say, the perfect one — deliciously coated in a sweet, citrusy glaze, and precisely baked so that it retains a most and tender flesh.
