Print Recipe


  • 1 small boneless fully cooked ham (about 5 pounds)
  • 1 stick butter softened
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme minced


  • Line your air fryer basket with foil, creating a well to hold the juices and add the ham to the basket.
  • In a small bowl, combine the butter, garlic, sage, rosemary, and thyme. Spread half of the mixture over the ham, reserving the second half for later.
  • Cover the ham with foil tightly and cook at 300F for 45 minutes.
  • Remove the top layer of foil and carefully rub the butter over the ham (it will probably melt as it hits the hot ham-- that’s okay!)
  • Cook the ham at 375F for an additional 15 minutes.


You can use any combination of herbs you have on hand— sage, thyme, parsley, and rosemary are all great options!
