How to Make Air Fryer Ham with Garlic and Herbed Butter
This recipe is somewhat easy to put together and doesn’t require too much in the way of time. This is what makes it perfect for any time, any reason, and any season.
- To get started on this recipe you are going to want to ensure that you have a small boneless, fully cooked ham.
- It is important to soften your butter before you get started to make it easy to make.
- Line your air fryer basket with aluminum foil. Create a small well to hold the juices and add the ham to the basket.
- In a small mixing bowl, combine the butter, garlic, sage, rosemary, and thyme.
- Spread half of the butter mixture over the top of the ham and reserve the second half for later.
- Cover the ham tightly with foil and cook at 300 degrees for 45 minutes.
- Remove the top layer of foil and carefully rub the butter over the ham. The butter will probably melt as it touches the hot ham and that is perfectly ok.
- Cook the ham at 375 for an additional 15 minutes.
