  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Tear off two large sheets of aluminum foil. Place one ham slice onto each piece of foil, and sprinkle brown sugar on both sides. Spread a little bit of the crushed pineapple over the ham, then top with sweet potatoes. Sprinkle a little bit more brown sugar and pineapple over the sweet potatoes. Close the aluminum foil tightly around the ham, and place on a baking sheet.
  3. Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven. Remove from the oven, and carefully open the packets. Sprinkle miniature marshmallows over the top, and return to the oven with the foil open. Bake for another 10 minutes. If you want the marshmallows really toasty, you could brown them under the broiler for a couple of minutes. You will end up with a sweet, juicy ham dish and very few dishes to wash.

Before sprinkling the ham w/ brown sugar, brush on some Dijon or grainy mustard on both sides, then continue on with the rest of the recipe...Adds a little extra "kick"



My family absolutely loved this meal. My 5 year old son, who is the pickiest eater on earth, wanted to have this again the next day. I added a sprinkle of chopped walnuts to my husband's and my "packet". This was one of the easiest and tastiest recipes I have ever found and not having to wash any pots or pans was a big plus. I will definitely be making this recipe at least twice a month. :-)



I remember making this over the campfire as a Girl Scout so it was fun to try it out again. My recollection is of chunk pineapple rather than crushed, so that's what I used and I liked it fine that way. I am not sure I'd like it with crushed. The packets are good cooked in the oven, on the barbecue or on the coals of a campfire (when you're out in the woods with no refrigeration you can substitute Spam for the ham, too.) I will be interested to try this with fresh sweet potatoes rather than canned, I think I will like the firmer texture.
