How to Cook a Precooked Ham in an Electric Roaster or Slow Cooker

Precooked hams offer the ultimate in convenience for not only holiday and Sunday dinners, but day-to-day meal plans and dining. A precooked ham provides enough meat for several meals, from dinner to leftovers for sandwiches and omelets. Cook your precooked ham in an electric roaster or slow cooker and save yourself time and energy. With a small amount of prep work, your ham will heat on auto-pilot while you cook sides or relax with a novel and a glass of wine.
