How do you make Air Fryer Molasses Dijon Ham with Roasted Vegetables?

Start by heating your air-fryer to 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare the ham for frying by basting it with the butter, mustard, molasses, clove and apple cider vinegar marinade on aluminum foil. Combine the marinade ingredients into a saucepan and heat until the butter is melted. Full warning: the marinade will smell really good and get you really excited! Whisk the marinade ingredients together. Baste your cooked spiral ham with 1/4 of the marinade, and cover the ham with foil. Fry the marinated ham in your air-fryer at 300 degrees for 40 minutes. At the 40-minute mark, unwrap ham, discard the foil, and baste the ham with the remaining marinade. Fry again for 5 to 7 minutes at 400 degrees. Here is when the crispy, mouth-watering caramelization process happens (our favorite part).

While your ham is frying the first time, bake the Brussels sprouts and squash in the oven at 400 degrees for a total of 25 to 30 minutes. To make the roasted vegetables, line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Combine Brussels sprout ingredients with Brussel sprouts in a mixing bowl and bake on the top half of the baking sheet for 15 minutes. Next, do the same with your squash and bake with the Brussels sprouts for 10 to 15 minutes.
