I’ve been obsessed with Sheet Pan meals lately. Do you know why? My FIRST COOKBOOK , The Ultimate One-Pan Oven Cookbook, was published earlier this year and it’s all about using your oven and sheet pans (and roasting pans, dutch oven, cake pans, etc) to make easy and delicious meals for your family!
I love using my oven any time of the year. Even in the summer!
Yep, I find that summer is the perfect way to cook in the oven since you don’t have to stoop over the stove and stir and flip. You just place whatever you are cooking in the oven and forget about it. Easy!
And, of course, turning the oven in the cold months makes your kitchen feel cozy and inviting. I love making Sheet Pan Dinner (or breakfasts)!
I’ve made ham only a few times in my life. In fact, I remember one time and the second might be a figment of my imagination.
I like ham but it’s a bit too salty for my taste and making a whole big piece means ham leftovers which I rarely want to have.
Yet, I keep thinking of making ham again. It just seems like such an easy, delicious, and festive meal for Christmas or Easter holidays. I like all the sweet sauces and glazes that coat the shiny ham skin.
Well, even if I wanted to do a whole Christmas Ham I wouldn’t be able to make it covered in a glaze since my husband notoriously doesn’t like sweet and savoury together, otherwise I’d be all about making this Honey Mustard Glazed Ham from Striped Spatula.
This Sheet Pan Christmas Ham Dinner For Two is the perfect way to enjoy a festive ham dinner without leftovers.
The Apple-Mustard Sauce is made in a separate ramekin and can be spooned over individual ham steaks, so it appeals to those who don’t like sweet and salty together.
Savoury lemon carrots and spicy Brussels sprouts are cooked together with the individual ham steaks that rest happily on sliced apples and oranges.
Garnish the whole sheet pan with extra orange and apple slices and add some festive rosemary sprigs.

- 1 tablespoon apple jelly
- 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
- 1 tablespoon orange juice
- 1 pound russet potatoes (1 medium potato)
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon dry parsley
- 1/2 teaspoon dry chives
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 3/4 cup milk (hot)
- 3/4 pound small/young carrots (cut in half)
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/2 lemon juice
- 1/4 teaspoon dry thyme
- 1/4 teaspoon dry rosemary
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 pound Brussels sprouts (cleaned and cut in half)
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 2 individual ham steaks (175 g each)
- 4 slices apple
- 4 slices orange
- apple slices
- orange slices
- rosemary sprigs
- chopped parsley
Preheat the oven to 400F.
In a small ramekin, combine the apple jelly, dijon mustard, and orange juice. Mix a little bit but there's no need to fully blend the ingredients together. They'll blend once cooked.
Peel and dice the potato into 1/2-1 inch pieces. I prefer smaller pieces since they cook better.
Place the potatoes into a small ceramic dish in one layer.
Sprinkle the spices and add pieces of butter to the potatoes.
Heat up the milk until it almost boils. Pour the steaming milk onto the potatoes and cover the form tightly with foil.
Place a pan with the potatoes on a large sheet pan.
Place two orange slices onto a sheet pan and cover with two apple slices. Place a ham steak on top. Repeat with the second ham steak.
Add the carrots to the sheet pan, drizzle with the olive oil, lemon juice, and spices. Mix well.
Add the cut up Brussels sprouts to the sheet pan, drizzle with the olive oil, add the spices, and mix well.
Place a ramekin onto the sheet pan.
Add a few sprigs of rosemary to the vegetables.
Bake for 40 minutes.
Once baked, carefully take the foil off the potatoes. Mash with the fork. It will look very thin at first but the milk will absorb into the potatoes and they will get thick and creamy.
Garnish with extra orange slices, apple, slices, chopped parsley, and a few rosemary sprigs.
