I’ve been a slow-cooker fan for years, but it’s only recently that I’ve really come to understand how versatile they are. One thing I wish I’d figured out long ago? Slow-cooker rolls are a thing, and they’re delicious. In fact, slow-cooker rolls might be my new favorite thing. They’re easy to make with store-bought doughs, but you can also make them totally from scratch. And, unlike oven-baked rolls, you can start them early in the morning and come home to still-warm rolls that are ready to eat (as long as your slow-cooker has a “warm” setting, which most do).

There’s also the fact that there are many, many different kinds of slow-cooker rolls out there. There are sweet rolls and savory rolls, breakfast rolls and dinner rolls. Heck, there are even dessert roll options, for people anyone who isn’t a cake or a pie person. Below are 17 delicious recipes that showcase just how good (and how versatile) slow-cooker rolls can be. Throw one in your slow-cooker tomorrow morning, and your future self will thank you.
