I love bread. Yeast rolls. Sourdough. French. White. Wheat. Italian. You get the jist. 😉 I could never do one of those diets that makes you give up bread…just couldn’t happen folks.
Crock Pot Dinner Rolls
These Crock Pot Dinner Rolls are super easy to make. You want to make sure that your rolls rise enough. If not, they will be more like the consistency of biscuits. To get your rolls light and fluffy, be patient. Wait until they have risen all the way before turning your crock pot over to high.
- 8-10 frozen dinner rolls
- Garnish: softened butter
- Cut a piece of parchment paper to fit the bottom of your crock pot and place in the bottom of your crock pot
- Spray your crock pot with a light layer of cooking spray
- Place your frozen dinner rolls in your crock pot
- Cover and cook on low for 1-2 hours, your rolls will thaw and raise
- Once your rolls have raised, turn you crock pot to high for 1-1 1/2 hours, until set
- If you want your rolls to be more golden, place your rolls on a baking sheet and broil for 90 seconds, watching closely
- Brush your baked rolls with your softened butter
Slow Cooker Recommendation
Since I wanted to have nice rounded edges on my rolls, I used my West Bend 6-Quart Round Slow Cooker. Any 5-6 quart slow cooker should work though…and if you are doing fewer rolls, you can use a smaller slow cooker. As always, just make sure you watch your rolls the first time around so you can learn how your slow cooker cooks.

Note from Cris:
Anytime we post a recipe like this we get emails asking why on earth would you use a slow cooker for something you could throw in the oven. Truth be told, we don’t always make our rolls in the crock pot, but it is an option we love to have– especially around the holidays when oven space is very limited. It is also a great option for folks who are traveling/camping or away from home… just some food for thought ;).
