These Crock Pot Easy Homemade Yeast Rolls are the best yeast rolls I have ever had, but I may be biased since they are made from my Momma's tried-and-true recipe.

  • 1 Package Dry Yeast
  • ¼ Cup Warm Water
  • 1 Cup Milk scalded
  • ¼ Cup Oil
  • Cup Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 2.75 Cups Flour divided
  • 1 Egg Beaten


  • Dissolve your yeast in warm water and set aside
  • Mix your scalded milk with your oil, sugar and salt and let cool to lukewarm
  • Add 1½ cups sifted flour to your your milk mixture
  • Then add your yeast and beaten egg, mixing until well combined
  • Blend into your mixture 1-2 cups of flour until a soft dough forms.
  • Place in a greased bowl, turning once to coat.
  • Set in warm place until your dough is 1½ to double in size.
  • Flatten with hands to ¾ inch thickness on a floured surface.
  • Cut with a glass and place rolls on parchment paper lined cookie sheets
  • Place cookie sheets in the freezer until cut rolls are frozen solid.
  • Put frozen rolls in a freezer safe container
  • When you are ready to make your rolls, place frozen rolls in a greased casserole crock or 6-quart crock pot. (I used my 9 x13 casserole slow cooker made by Crock Pot)
  • Cover and cook on low until rolls have doubled in size.
  • Once rolls have doubled in size, wipe the condensation off of your lid, replace lid and change heat setting to high
  • Cook on high for 45 minutes to one hour until the rolls are done
  • If desired, place rolls in broiler (on high if you have the choice) for 30-90 seconds, until tops are golden brown. *WATCH CLOSELY*
  • Top with butter.
  • Turn out on cooling rack and break apart once they are cool enough to handle
