Slow Cooker Pull-Apart Dinner Rolls

Slow Cooker Pull-Apart Dinner Rolls are definitely one of what I consider Best Thanksgiving Recipes.
Slow Cooker Pull-Apart Dinner Rolls
If you’ve never made yeast bread in your slow cooker, you are missing out. It’s considerably easier because you don’t have to let the dough rise.
All you have to do is mix the dough ingredients, knead it for a few minutes, shape the dough and place it in the slow cooker. The heat of the slow cooker is just right to proof the yeast while the rolls cook.

The Slow Cooker Pull-Apart Dinner Rolls don’t brown on top. If that’s an issue just pop them under the broiler after removing from the slow cooker and brushing with melted butter.

I didn’t bother because I didn’t care and our broiler doesn’t work. Even if it did I would probably skip that step because I most likely would have set the rolls on fire or at least burned the tops enough they would have been inedible.
