Slow Cooker Dinner Rolls


I've been seeing some posts on Pinterest about making bread in the slow cooker.  I decided to give it a whirl.  Let me tell you, this is GREAT!  It is so easy and only takes about 2 1/2 hours from start to finish.  This is my new go-to method for making Rhodes Rolls.  

I used a 6 quart slow cooker and baked 9 rolls.  You will need to adjust the amount of rolls depending on the size of your slow cooker.  The cooked rolls right out of the slow cooker are not brown on the top.  They are done, they just don't look done.  To remedy that, I stuck the rolls under the broiler for about 90 seconds.  They had a nice color and tasted great.   Who knew you could make rolls in the slow cooker?!  So cool!




Slow Cooker Dinner Rolls
(Printable Recipe)


8-9 Rhodes frozen dinner rolls

Line a 6-quart slow cooker with parchment paper.  Lightly spray with cooking spray.  Arrange bread dough in slow cooker.

Turn slow cooker on LOW and let bread thaw and rise for about 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Once rolls have risen, turn slow cooker on HIGH.  Let bread cook for about 1 hour and 15 minutes, until done.

Place rolls under broiler for 90 seconds or until golden brown (if desired).  Serve with butter.

  2. I've never heard of these rolls. How long do they take in a regular oven?

    1. Rhodes Rolls are sold in the freezer section near the frozen biscuits etc. It comes in package of 2 loaves...all you do is grease your pans ...put bread ...cover loosely with clear wrap or foil sprayed with cooking spray. Once the dough has doubled in size you bake according to directions... probably are 30-40 min till golden brown
      It also comes inn a round tin with the rolls as shown in the photo here

  3. I've never seen slow cooker rolls on Pinterest either, but that's way less energy usage than the oven, so maybe I'll make some once in a while now. I knew you could make cakes in the slow cooker, so it makes sense.

  5. I made these last night and they turned out great! Once I turned the slow-cooker to High, I checked on them after about 45 minutes and noticed the bottoms and a little bit up the sides were quite brown. I took a spatula and flipped the rolls over (they flipped as one unit) and I left them for the rest of the time. That browned the tops quite nicely! :):) LOVE your recipes! Keep posting more! :)

    1. They are completely edible after cooking in the slow cooker. I chose to brown them for a minute under the broiler for looks.
