How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • If you eat the ham skin, leave it on, if you don't eat it, remove it now.
  • Place the ham in a roasting pan.
  • Add about 1 inch of Coke to the pan.
  • Bake, covered, allowing for 15 minutes per pound.
  • Baste the ham frequently with the Coke.
  • Add more Coke to the roasting pan during the cooking as it evaporates to prevent burning.
  • Turn the ham over 1/2 hour before your baking time ends.
  • Meanwhile make topping:
  • In a medium bowl combine the brown sugar, bread crumbs, butter, mustard, and pepper.
  • After the ham has baked for 15 minutes per pound, remove it from the oven.
  • Carefully press the crumb mixture onto the ham, don't worry if some falls into the liquid in the roaster.
  • Return the ham to the oven, UNCOVERED, for 30 to 40 minutes more, until the coating is golden.
  • Again, don't let the bottom of the roaster dry out -- add more Coke if required.
  • Let sit 10 minutes before carving.
  • Sauce:
  • There will be crumb mixture that has fallen into the roaster. Stir that into the liquid in the roaster, pour into a gravy boat and serve as a sauce.
