Air Fryer Ham


  • Ham (sized for your air fryer)
  • Foil for wrapping the ham
  • For Glaze:
    • 1 Tablespoon orange juice or pineapple juice
    • 2 Tablespoons of brown sugar
    • 1 Tablespoon of honey
    • 1 teaspoon of dried mustard (or 1 Tablespoon of table mustard)

Ham should be cooked for 8-12 minutes per pound. Once you calculate the amount of time your ham will require, take away 10-15 minutes for browning time, then split the other number in two.


  • 8lb ham x  8 minutes = 64 minutes total cook time
  • 64 – 15 minute browning time  = 54 minutes
  • 54 minutes split in half  = 1st and second cook times of 27 minutes each


  • Defrost the Ham in the refrigerator
  • Trim the ham to fit into your air fryer, or preslice so it will fit.
  • Wrap tightly in foil. 
  • Air fry at 320 for first calculated cook time 
  • Open foil and glaze ham. 
  • Reclose the foil and set air fry at 320 for the second calculated time.
  • Open foil and check the temp of your ham. It should be upwards of 10 degrees of your final ideal temp (145 for pork).
  • Reset your air fryer at 320 for 10-15 minutes to brown and finish. 
  • Slice and serve.
