Faster Dinner Rolls
Traditional dinner rolls that you buy frozen need to be placed in a baking pan, covered with plastic and left to rise for three to five hours before going into the oven for 20 minutes. You can cut this time down considerably by using a slow cooker, as this recipe shows. It instructs you to dip the frozen rolls into melted butter and grated Parmesan, sprinkle them with garlic powder and parsley then place them into the pot—and turn it on high. Within two hours, the bread is beautifully puffy and the tops of the rolls are light golden-brown.
