In the late 1950s, Harry Hoenselaar founded the first Honey Baked Ham Co. and Café in Atlanta, Georgia. Harry had a unique method of cooking and spiral slicing his hams that no one else in the business had done. Today the same great hams and other meats are sold at the Honey Baked Ham Co. at the corner of 61st and Memorial in Tulsa. Owner Lee Griffin has actually worked for the company 20 years before opening his own franchise. That experience, along with the quality products, has helped Lee maintain a thriving business for Tulsa families and businesses for 16 years. Hams from Honey Baked go through a strict vetting process before they are even cooked. Once selected, they are cured and flavored and baked between 20 and 24 hours over hickory smoke. They are then spiral-sliced before they are carefully packaged. Before the ham is sold, it is again inspected, and a special glaze is layered on before sealing it up. Also available to complete your meal are a plethora of side dishes sure to convince everyone you've labored for days over a hot stove. Items include standards such as mashed potatoes and gravy, green bean casserole, macaroni and cheese, and cornbread dressing. But how about shaking it up with a sweet potato soufflé or Tuscan style broccoli? A wide range of desserts, such as apple, pecan, and pumpkin pie are available as well. Honey Baked also has gift cards for purchase. Catering is another service the store offers. Think office parties, book clubs, dinner parties, and large family get-togethers. Besides their delectable hams, they can provide everything from boxed lunches to fruit and vegetable platters. Stop by the store and try one of their freshly-carved ham or turkey sandwiches. Along with their delectable deli menu are soups, salads and various sides for you to enjoy for lunch, or take it to go for dinner. Honey Baked is open Monday through Friday from 10-6 and always open online at www.honeybaked.com.
