Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 120 minutes

Ingredients: Add ingredients to List

8 lb spiral-sliced ham, bone-in
2 1/2 lb asparagus
2 tablespoon oil
1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning
1/4 cup cornstarch
3 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoon chicken bouillon granule
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
1 1/4 cup water
1 cup lemon juice
1 tablespoon lemon zest, finely shredded
1/4 cup butter
2 tablespoon Fresh thyme or parsley, snipped

directions:

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Place ham on rack in a shallow baking pan. Cover pan tightly with foil. Roast until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest portion (not touching bone) registers 135 degrees F. (about 15 minutes per pound).
2. Meanwhile, remove and discard woody stems from asparagus spears. Arrange asparagus in a 15 x 10 x 2-inch baking pan. Drizzle with cooking oil. Sprinkle with lemon pepper seasoning. When ham reaches 135 degrees F., add asparagus to oven. Roast about 30 minutes more or until asparagus is tender and ham registers 140 degrees F.
3. For lemon sauce: in a 1 1/2-quart saucepan combine cornstarch, sugar, bouillon granules and pepper. Stir in water, lemon juice and lemon peel. Bring to boil; reduce heat. Cook and stir until mixture is bubbly. Cook for 2 minutes more. Stir in butter and snipped thyme or parsley.
4. To serve, slice ham. Serve with asparagus and lemon sauce. (Use remaining ham for sandwiches or another recipe.)
