Air Fryer Baked Ham

Air Fryer Baked Ham

Before you begin: A 3-pound ham just fit in our 6-quart Air Fryer so plan accordingly. Ours was a cooked ham cut in half so it had a flat surface and a rounded top which is pretty typical of smaller cooked hams.

Yield: 8 to 10 servings 1x
Prep: 15 minutesCook: 45 minutesTotal: 1 hour


1 3-pound cooked boneless ham

1 cup dark brown sugar

3 tablespoons country mustard (or a mix of Dijon and whole grain mustard)

2 tablespoons melted butter

¼ teaspoon ground cloves

¼ teaspoon garlic powder

2 teaspoons soy sauce

½ cup dark rum


Preheat air fryer for 15 minutes on 400 degrees F.

Score the ham both directions with shallow narrow cuts, about ¼ inch between slices.

In a small bowl, mix brown sugar, mustard, melted butter, ground cloves, garlic power and soy sauce to form a thick paste.

In a small pan that fits in your air fryer basket (I fit a cake pan in mine), line the pan with foil and overhang about six inches. Press into the pan.

Pour in the rum and place the ham cut side down.

Brush or spoon on one quarter of the glaze.

Fold a piece of parchment over top then another piece of foil over the parchment so the entire ham is covered. Then fold up the sides from the bottom foil.

With oven mitts, lower the foiled pan into the air fryer basket and slide closed.

Lower temperature to 375 degrees F and cook for 30 minutes.

Raise temperature to 400 degrees F.

Slide basket out and place on a heat proof surface. Remove top foil and parchment, brush or spoon on another quarter of the glaze and close the basket with nothing covering the ham.

Set timer for five minutes. Glaze again and set for five more minutes. Coat with remaining glaze and cook five more minutes. Total 45 minutes from start.

Remove ham to your cutting board and slice.

Serve ham with our pineapple raisin sauce as shown above, or simply serve with the liquid at the bottom of the pan and serve on the side.
