Ham is a popular holiday meal. If you’re hosting this year, deciding to cook a ham is easy. What’s not so simple is figuring out how much ham you need to buy.
This year, make sure you get the right amount so that everyone is happy ― and you’re not drowning in leftovers. Lucky for you, the answer is simple.
3/4 to 1 pound of bone-in ham per person
1/2 pound per person for a boneless ham
(The bone adds weight to a ham, but remember, it can’t be eaten.)
