May 22nd, 2012 by Jim Field

  • 1 boneless fully cooked ham (4 to 6 pounds)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 can (12 ounces) regular cola
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 15 to 20 hoagie buns, split
  • lettuce leaves
  • tomatoes
  • sliced Colby-Monterey Jack cheese

Place ham in a roasting pan.  Score the surface with shallow diagonal cuts, making diamond shapes.  Add water to the pan.  Cover and bake at 325 degrees for 1 1/4 hours.  Pour cola over ham; sprinkle with brown sugar.  Bake, uncovered, 30-45 minutes longer or until a meat thermometer reads 140 degrees and ham is heated through.  Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.  Serve on buns with lettuce, cheese and tomatoes.  Yield:  15-20 servings.
