Bake up a batch of these Rosemary Dinner Rolls in your slow cooker. The rolls turn out light, fluffy, and ready to be slathered with butter.
I received complimentary products from Rhodes Bread to aid in the creation of this post for #NationalSlowCookerMonth. All opinions are mine alone. #ad #sponsored
My last confession this week is that I have never baked in a slow cooker. But I’m here to tell you, it’s time for me and you to do this baking thing in a slow cooker. I tend to have “best laid plans” when it comes to making homemade rolls (using frozen dough balls). By that I mean, I want to make them but always seem to forget to take the dough out in time for it to thaw, rise, and bake. So, dinner is served without rolls.
Not usually an issue, unless I’ve told the family we were having them. Then it’s all about where the rolls AREN’T.
I usually remember a couple of hours before dinner that I forgot to take the Rhodes bread dough balls out. This is no longer an issue! Bake those frozen rolls in the slow cooker, ya’ll! Yes, they will not brown like the oven – BUT – 90 seconds under the broiler and no one knows they didn’t! OR, you can serve them as is from the slow cooker, the rolls are baked through just not brown on top.
Oh, and this recipe is perfect for holidays when the oven is full of your side dishes. Usually the oven temp is never the same for the rolls and the sides. Bake those rolls in the slow cooker and no worries!
This is my last recipe for #NationalSlowCookerMonth and it’s one I’ll be making over and over again.

Tips to Make Slow Cooker Rosemary Dinner Rolls:
This recipe is best made in a 6 quart slow cooker. Use parchment paper in the slow cooker and spray the paper with non-stick spray.
Resist the urge to open the lid to the slow cooker at any time during the rising and baking cycles. Doing so will not only add time to the baking, but may cause your rolls not to rise as much.
As I mentioned, the rolls are perfectly baked through when they come out of the slow cooker, but for appearances sake, you can brown them under the broiler for 90 seconds. If you do so, before browning, brush melted butter over the tops of the rolls, sprinkle with a little kosher salt, and chopped fresh rosemary. If you choose to serve the rolls from the slow cooker, brush the tops with melted butter (lightly), and then sprinkle the salt and rosemary over then lightly. Can’t go wrong either way.
Slow Cooker Rosemary Dinner Rolls
- 6 qt. slow cooker
- 10 frozen Rhodes dinner roll dough balls
- 1 1/2 tbsp melted butter
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- 1 tsp fresh, finely chopped rosemary
- Line a 6 quart slow cooker with parchment paper and lightly spray with non-stick spray.
- Place 10 frozen dough balls in slow cooker, leaving a little space between each.
- Place lid on slow cooker and set to LOW for 1 hour and 15 minutes. This is the thawing and rising cycle. Resist the urge to remove the lid during this cycle. Doing so will add time to the process and risk the rolls of not rising properly.
- When the time is up for the rising cycle, set the slow cooker on HIGH and let the rolls bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes. The rolls will brown on the bottom but not the top. (SEE NOTES). Again, resist the urge to open the lid during the baking cycle.
- Once rolls are done, remove from slow cooker and place on baking sheet. Brush lightly with melted butter, sprinkle kosher salt and rosemary over the rolls. Set under the broiler for 90 seconds to brown. OR if you are serving from the slow cooker, brush with melted butter and sprinkle with salt and rosemary and serve.

I’m super excited about these slow cooker dinner roll recipes this week! Such a great idea! I love rosemary – it’s one of my favorite herbs, especially during the cold months.

These look and sound delicious. I never considered using my slow cooker to make dinner rolls, but I’m going to bookmark this recipe – it’ll be great when I’m entertaining a house full of people and have a full oven!
I love that you added a little flavor to these rolls and that they are made in the slow cooker!
Our rosemary plant is taking over our yard, and I have lots of coupons for Rhodes .. Serendipity, right? Who knew you could bake rolls in the slow cooker?
I am digging all these slow cooker bread/roll recipes. These would be perfect for some bolognese! Or even used for sliders.

Seriously these look so good! Now I know what I will be making for dinner to serve with my veggie soup 🙂
I made these last night, and we used non-dairy butter and a sprinkle of garlic salt and they were amazing. Thanks for the super easy and yummy recipe!
I bet that garlic salt made the rolls so good!
