A Restaurant Guy

“I’ve told so many people that [Restaurant Guys Radio] is basically Car Talk for Food, and I mean that in the most positive way. I don’t know how often you guys listen to Car Talk but that’s quite a compliment.” >> Listen: hi | lo

Easter Baked Fresh Ham With Herbs

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  It is preferable to have the butcher remove the small blade bone--not necessary, however.
  2. Cut garlic into 18 to 20 slivers.  With the tip of knife, make small incisions all over the ham and insert garlic.  Using sharp knife, score the fat side of ham deeply.  Place the bay leaf, sage, and thyme on a flat surface and chop with a heavy knife.  Chop as finely as possible.  Sprinkle the ham all over with the herb mixture, salt and pepper to taste.  Rub the seasonings into the ham all over.  Use a generous but reasonable amount of salt.
  3. Place the ham fat side up in a large baking dish about 12" x 18" x 2 l/2".  Place the ham in the oven and bake, basting occasionally, for 2 1/2 hours.
  4. Reduce the over heat to 350 degrees F and cover the ham with aluminum foil.  Continue baking about 2 1/2 hours or untilo ham is thoroughly cooked.  When cooked, should have internal temperature of at least 170.
  5. When ham is cooked, remove from pan.  Tilt pan and skim fat from gravy.  A judicious amount of water may be added to pan juices and brought to the boil for the sauce.


  1. 2 anchovies--smash it very fine. 
  2. Very little onion and garlic smash. 
  3. Take 1 egg and mayonnaise and beat with one hard boiled egg mashed very fine. 
  4. 1 teaspoon capers and mix all together.

Who Are The Restaurant Guys? Every week, Francis Schott and Mark Pascal host the Restaurant Guys, a show that's as informative as it is fun.

The show includes discussions and interviews with famous chefs, restaurateurs, wine and food writers, critics; and the Guys even give stuff away occasionally.
