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
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.
