Easy Slow Cooker Dinner Rolls
As November starts rolling in, my excuses to bake have been exponentially increasing, and that gets me excited to get in the kitchen and start experimenting with new recipes and techniques.
These buttery slow cooker dinner rolls are super easy to make and definitely addicting. Serve them with dinner or use them as buns for sliders.
Just like this crock pot bread recipe, these rolls do not require any proofing time. Just make the dough, cut into rolls and insert. The slow cooker will take care of the rest.
I like to slather the tops with melted butter and broil them for a couple of minutes as soon as they’re ready. The texture is soft and the taste is sweet. You can add garlic and herbs if you’d like. If you prefer them less sweet simply reduce the quantity of sugar.
Last night, I shared the entire process on my Instagram page. I am sure the content has been erased but keep on the lookout for more recipes and preparations.
Why cook them in the crock-pot when there’s an oven? Because you might need the oven to cook other things or you don’t want to heat up the entire house.
Imagine it’s Thanksgiving day, you have the turkey, stuffing, casseroles, and maybe even a pie in the oven. Where on earth are you going to bake the bread? Now you have the answer!
Here’s how we did it:

- 3 cups of bread flour or all-purpose flour more may be needed
- 1 cup of milk
- 2 1/4 teaspoons of instant yeast (1 packet)
- 2 tablespoons of honey
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 tablespoons of melted butter
- 2 teaspoons of salt
- 1 Tablespoon melted butter
- Coarse salt optional
Warm the milk in the microwave
Pour the milk in the bowl of a mixer, sprinkle the yeast. Mix lightly and cover for 5 minutes for yeast to activate
When the mixture starts to bubble add the flour, honey, sugar, melted butter, and salt
Using the dough hook, mix on medium speed for 5-6 minutes or until dough becomes soft and elastic. You'll know the dough is ready when it cleans the sides of the bowl
Remove from the mixer and place on the counter. Cut into 12 equal pieces (I used a weight to be more exact and each of my rolls weighted approximately 2.29 oz)
Roll each piece into a ball
Line slow cooker with parchment paper
Place balls inside and cover
Cook on HIGH for approximately 90 minutes
Check the bottom to see if the bread is completely cooked (bottom should be browned)
Remove from the crock pot and brush the tops with melted butter
Sprinkle the tops with coarse salt (optional)
Broil for 1-2 minutes or until the tops brown
