By opting for a carbohydrate-controlled Christmas, you can make the most of the party circuit and look fab in your festive frocks without worrying about your waistline, or your health. Try this Atkins glazed ham that won't have you worrying about the next-day guilt!


  • 1.5 – 2kg ham with bone, or 1-1.5kg boneless ham

  • 1 tsp rice malt syrup 

  • ¼ cup stevia (or similar)

  • ½ tsp mustard powder

  • ½ tsp white vinegar

  • 1 tbs bourbon whisky

  • 1 tsp whole cloves


  • 1.

    Preheat oven to 180?C. Mix together rice malt syrup, stevia, mustard, vinegar, and whisky, and set aside.

  • 2.

    Remove the rind from the ham, and using a sharp knife score the top and sides in a diamond like pattern (around 2-3 cm diamonds, with incisions around 1 – 2 cm deep). Make a small incision into the centre of each diamond, and insert a clove into each.

  • 3.

    Place ham in a baking tray scored side up and brush over glaze. Bake for 20 minutes per kilo of ham, or until ham starts to brown and is warmed through.
