Tired of turkey? Fly the coop! Try something new for the holidays: stuffed ham.

Ingredients

1
pork boneless leg (fresh ham), 4 pounds
Salt
3
cups water
6
medium onions, chopped (3 cups)
2
cups soft bread cubes (3 to 4 slices)
1
egg, beaten
2
tablespoons butter or margarine
1
tablespoon dried sage leaves, crushed
3/4
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon pepper

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 325ºF. Spread pork flat; sprinkle lightly with salt.
  • 2 Heat water to boiling in 2-quart saucepan; add onions. Cook 5 minutes; drain. Mix onions and remaining ingredients. Spread half of the stuffing over pork; roll up. Fasten with metal skewers.
  • 3 Place pork fat side down on rack in shallow roasting pan. Spoon any remaining stuffing over top of pork. Insert meat thermometer so tip is in center of thickest part of pork and does not touch stuffing. Roast uncovered 3 to 3 1/2 hours or until thermometer reads 165ºF.
  • 4 Cover pork with tent of aluminum foil and let stand 15 to 20 minutes or until thermometer reads 170ºF. (Temperature will continue to rise about 5º and pork will be easier to carve as juices set up). Remove foil and skewers. Cut into slices.
Tips  

As your roast ham camps out under the foil tent, the temperature will continue to rise about 5° and the ham will be easier to carve as the juices set up.

Crushing or crumbling the dried sage leaves between your fingers helps to release their fragrant flavor.

Vary the stuffing by using different types of bread. White, rye, whole wheat--each will add its own distinctive flavor to the stuffing. The only absolute is that the bread should be fresh and soft.

If you have a food processor, you can make fresh bread “cubes” right at home. Just place torn bread slices into the bowl of your processor and pulse to get the size of bread pieces needed. The irregularly shaped pieces will add a unique texture to the stuffing.
