New York City restaurant maven Sarabeth Levine, author of Sarabeth's Good Morning Cookbook, has a secret for delectably sweet and crispy breakfast ham: orange juice.


  • 1 (1-pound) cooked ham slice
  • ⅔ cup fresh orange juice
  • 2 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • Pinch of black pepper


    Rinse ham. Let it marinate in the fridge overnight (or at least for 1 hour) in orange juice, maple syrup, and black pepper.

    In the morning, broil 6-8 minutes on an oiled baking sheet, turning once; then slice and serve hot.
