How Long to Bake a Ham?
Ham is a holiday dinner classic. Place your ham in a shallow pan and bake at 325° F and follow the recommended guidelines. Cook all raw fresh ham and ready-to-eat ham to a minimum internal temperature of 145° F followed by a 3-minute rest. Reheat cooked hams packaged in USDA-inspected plants to 140° F and all others to 165° F.
