  • 3 lb boneless spiral ham



  • Slice the ham if not pre done.
  • Wrap ham completely in foil paper and place in the air fryer basket.
  • Cook on 300 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the glaze by whisking honey, brown sugar, dijon mustard, nutmeg, cayenne pepper, and salt in a medium sized saucepan over medium heat. Bring mixture to a boil and immediately remove from heat.
  • After 15 minutes is up, open foil on ham and brush ½ of the glaze on the ham, brushing in between the slices as well. Cover the ham with foil and cook for an additional 15 minutes on 300 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Once time is up, remove foil and pour the remaining glaze on top.
  • Optional step: If you want a little char on your ham edges, continue to cook ham, uncovered, on 400 degrees for 3-5 minutes.


  • The ham should be cooked on 300 degrees for about 10 minutes per pound. Therefore, if your ham is larger, it will need a longer cook time, smaller, less cook time.
  • Make sure that the ham is wrapped completely in the foil.
  • Allow for 1/2 pound of ham per person.
