Recipe Tips and Variations

The recipe, as written, is potato-heavy because tender roasted potatoes are so, so good. But, you can reduce the amount and add more green beans if you like – they will still cook in the same amount of time.

Feel free to pile on the ham, too, and layer a couple of slices with one pineapple ring. Most likely, you will have leftover ham – I use a 2-pound quarter ham for this and layer quite a few pieces on the sheet pan and save the rest for sandwiches.

If your store doesn’t have quarter hams you can use two to three ham steaks and slice them.

If you don’t like green beans you can use thick asparagus (avoid the thin ones – they will overcook) or brussels sprouts (halve or quarter them).

Instead of baby potatoes, you can use red potatoes or Yukon Gold potatoes – they just need to be cut into bite-sized pieces that are roughly the same size.

Whichever potatoes you use, try sprinkling some grated Parmesan over them before serving if you like a little cheese.

  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x
  • Category: Dinner
  • Method: Bake
  • Cuisine: American


  • 1 pound baby potatoes, cut in half
  • 1/2-pound green beans, trimmed
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 teaspoon fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 quartered boneless ham, sliced (see note)
  • 1 (20-ounce) can sliced pineapple, drained
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard


Preheat oven to 450°F. Spray a sheet pan with nonstick spray.

Place the potatoes on 1/3 of the pan and then the green beans right next to them in the middle. Drizzle the potatoes and green beans with oil, garlic, thyme, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Stir the potatoes then the green beans, so they get evenly coated but not mixed together.

On the last third of the pan, alternate laying down ham, then pineapple until you have used up all the ham. If your ham is sliced thin, you can double up on the ham layers, so you have two slices, then pineapple, then two slices.

In a small saucepan, combine the honey, brown sugar, vinegar, and Dijon mustard. Bring the mixture up to a simmer over medium-high heat. Brush the honey glaze over the ham and pineapple.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until the potatoes are fork-tender.


Depending on the size of your quarter ham (the ones I find are usually around two pounds), you will probably have extra slices. Save them for sandwiches! You can also double up the slices on the sheet pan to use more so you have leftovers. If you can’t find quarter hams, you can use two to three ham steaks and slice them.

  1. I made this last night and loved it. So easy and the flavors are great I’m thinking I’ll make it for Easter too!

  2. After 15 min. 450 ham was starting to show burn burnt type on edges and dry put the potatoes and or dried everything out…is that right temp.? Turning it down.

    1. That is the right temperature but every oven is different, so it’s always good to adjust the heat if needed.

  3. I made this on Easter 2021 for my 22yo son and me, and we loved it! He didn’t do any of the cooking, but even he was impressed that something this simple and easy could taste so good–and it feels fancy. It’s our new traditional Easter meal. Thank you!

    1. I have leftover sliced Easter ham in the freezer. Can I use that? Thanks so much. Looks awesome.
