A sweet potato gratin would work nicely. Also caramelized brussel sprouts and home made biscuits would be great as well!
If you want spicy to contrast with the sweet glaze on the ham, an easy sweet potato side would be whipped sweet potatoes, livened up with minced chipotle peppers, along with a little bit of the adobo sauce from the can of peppers. I second the recommendation of brussels sprouts. Apples and pears pair well with ham. Baked apples or home-made apple sauce would be good, or poached pears if you want something fancier. Cornbread is a good choice for a bread in addition to biscuits.
This is a great complement:
Add a green vegetable like roasted brussels sprouts and you're good!

How about some macaroni and cheese?
Have you ever tried Mormon Funeral Potatoes? There are many variations online,and luckily it seems to be a foolproof recipe that mimics CrackerBarrel's hash brown casserole. It would be a good savory counterpart to a sweet ham.

You better pick it up tomorrow. The HB Ham place around here can have an hour or more wait to pick up a ham on Xmas Eve.
In fact, you might not even get one as a walk in with out a pre-order.
So, having a supermarket version would be a back up plan. (A blow torch and some brown sugar will give you the crust on a supermarket one).
