Loosely wrap the baking dish in aluminum foil and warm for 10-20 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 140°F

Reheating ham in the microwave

Dampen a piece of paper towel big enough to cover the bottom of your plate or microwave safe tray.

Arrange sliced ham on your plate overtop of the paper towel in a single layer. Add another layer of damp paper towel on top of the slices.

Microwave at 50% power for 45 seconds, turn over, and microwave for another 45 seconds at 50% power.
