how to reheat leftover ham in the air fryer

Can you use your air fryer to reheat leftover ham? Yes! The holidays bring lots of festive feasts that also bring lots of leftovers. You can use your air fryer to warm up vegetables, side dishes, and even meats like leftover turkey and ham in a few simple steps. Use the air fryer to make the most of your Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Easter leftovers!

❔ Why use your air fryer to heat leftover ham?

The air fryer is a small convection oven that uses dry heat that circulates around the surface area of the food. Because of the way it works, food is reheated quicker than using the oven saving you time and electricity.

πŸ– How To Reheat Leftover Ham Slices In The Air Fryer

  1. Preheat your air fryer to 350F for 3-5 minutes.
  2. Place one pound of sliced ham arranged evenly on a small oven-safe rimmed baking dish that’s small enough to fit in your air fryer. You can also make a small rimmed dish using aluminum foil.
  3. Pour 1/3 cup of water over the ham slices.
  4. Place the ham in the preheated air fryer and set the timer for 8 minutes.
  5. Halfway through the cooking time, flip the ham using tongs. Cook for the remaining 4 minutes.
  6. Remove the ham slices with tongs and serve while hot.

🐷 How To Reheat Whole Ham In The Air Fryer

If you have a whole ham that is fully cooked but not sliced, you can also reheat it in the air fryer.

  1. Make sure the ham is small enough to fit in the air fryer basket without touching the heating element. You may need to cut the ham into 2-3 pieces to make it fit.
  2. Wrap the whole ham tightly in aluminum foil.
  3. Preheat the air fryer to 325F for 3-5 minutes.
  4. Add the aluminum foil-wrapped ham to the air fryer basket and set the timer for 10 minutes per pound.
  5. Once finished, remove from the air fryer with tongs or oven mitts and carefully open the foil as steam will escape. Slice and serve while hot.

  1. For best results, let the ham slices sit at room temperature for 10-15 minutes to take the chill off. This will help the protein in the meat relax making it easier to warm through.
  2. This method is for one pound of ham, but if your air fryer basket is larger, you can reheat more at once. You may need to add a few minutes to the cooking time or reheat in batches.
  3. If your ham is extra dry, seal the dish with foil on top after adding water to trap in all of the moisture.
