Slow Cooker Dinner Rolls and a #Giveaway

I received Sponsor Gifts to use in the creation of recipes for #NationalSlowCookerMonth.  I received no monetary compensation.  All opinions and writings are strictly my own.

These gorgeous dinner rolls were made from frozen to beautiful golden brown in about 3 hrs.  Stunning and delicious.

Today is the first day of a week long event celebrating Slow Cookers.......

It is #NationalSlowCookerMonth and Ashley of Cheese Curd in Paradise invited us to join her in a celebration.  Ashley is not only hosting this fabulous party but she also invited sponsors to join in the fun.  We bloggers were given product to use in the creation of our recipes and our readers are being given the opportunity to win some fabulous prizes.  You will learn more about that at the bottom of this post.

The first item I decided to showcase was some Texas Dinner Rolls from Rhodes.  They had sent me a cookbook featuring their product, a lovely apron and coupons for free product of my choice.  The recipe I am sharing today did not come from their cookbook but I have earmarked several pages for the future.

You might ask yourself why anyone would use a slow cooker to make dinner rolls?  I have several responses.  
  • You can thaw, raise and bake these rolls in a slow cooker in about the same amount of time it would take for them to thaw and raise on the counter.
  • You can free up oven space during large dinners or holidays when it is at a premium.
  • You can enjoy fresh baked dinner rolls even if your oven is out of commission.
  • You can make fresh baked dinner rolls during the hot summer months without having to heat up your house further by turning on the oven.

Place in the slow cooker frozen rock solid and turn to low.  In an hour and a half they are thawed and beautifully risen.

Turn the heat to high and let bake for another hour and they are cooked through.  I did place mine under a broiler for a minute so that the tops would brown but as you can see that is only for aesthetics as the bottoms and sides browned nicely in the slow cooker.

Don't forget to scroll down past this easy peasy recipe to enter the raffle!!!  Come back tomorrow when I will be sharing a recipe for Pinto Beans with Ham made in the slow cooker.

Let's take a look at the other recipes being brought to the party today.......

And here is my recipe......

Slow Cooker Dinner Rolls

Slow Cooker Dinner Rolls

Yield: 6 rolls
These gorgeous dinner rolls were made from frozen to beautiful golden brown in about 3 hrs. Stunning and delicious.


  • Cooking spray
  • Frozen Texas Dinner Rolls (I used Rhodes)


How to cook Slow Cooker Dinner Rolls

  1. Spray the crock of a slow cooker with the cooking spray and then line with a piece of parchment paper.
  2. Place the dinner rolls onto the parchment, cover and turn to low.  Cook for about an hour and a half, until the rolls are thawed and doubled in size.
  3. Turn the heat to high and cook for another hour or so, until the rolls are cooked through.
  4. Lift the parchment containing the rolls out of the crock and place the rolls under the broiler for about 1 minute until golden brown, if desired, watching carefully so they don't burn.

    1. It is very useful but my favorite is making them in the summer without heating the house.

  3. During my kitchen remodel my oven was out of commission for two months, including Thanksgiving! Slow cooker rolls to the rescue. Plus for holidays it is always a bonus to have one less thing to need to go in the oven.

  4. Wow! Who knew you could do this in the slow cooker! Brilliant! And I love all of your reasons you listed.

  5. I've never thought of using the slow cooker to make rolls! What a great idea and like you said it's perfect for freeing up oven space.

  6. Um...brilliant! I'm going to be trying this with my leftover Rhodes Dinner Rolls! I'm excited to test this method out!

  7. I have not made my rolls in the slow cooker and now I am wondering why I have waited so long.
