There are various methods for cooking the formed and smoked ham called a toupie, but the simplest method involves scoring the ham, pouring on a molasses-mustard glaze and baking the ham for about one hour per pound.
A toupie ham is fully cooked, so your goal in cooking is to add flavor to the ham. To do this, you need a roasting pan, an oven, aluminum foil, 2 cups warm water, honey mustard and molasses. Turn the oven on, and set to 325 degrees.
Make lengthwise cuts across the top of your ham about 1 inch apart. Cut lightly, about 1/8-inch thick. Cut crosswise across these cuts about 1 inch apart so you have scored squares in the top of the ham. Place the ham in the roasting pan with the scored side up.
Blend together 3 tablespoons each of molasses and honey mustard with 2 cups warm water. Pour the glaze over the ham. Cover the pan with either the pan lid or aluminum foil with the shiny side facing the ham.
Place the prepared ham in the oven and bake about one hour per pound of ham. Halfway through baking, baste the ham with glaze from the pan. When the ham is done, remove it from the oven, place it on a serving platter and baste the ham with glaze again. Loosely cover the ham with foil, and let it rest for 15 minutes before serving. Slice the ham, and serve it.
