You don’t need to heat up your big oven to make rolls, just pop them in the air fryer!

Big family dinners or holiday dinners require a lot of cooking. There are only so many burners on the stove and so much room in the oven.

It is time to start to think about how you can use other kitchen appliances to help you with big family dinners.

Think about how you can use your air fryer, your instant pot or your slow cooker!

Tips and Tricks

If you have frozen rolls that don’t require rising, start your air fryer at a lower temperature and increase the minutes.

It might be a little tricky at first, but if you check on the rolls and make adjustments as you go, they should turn out.

Each air fryer runs a bit differently but with some trial and error, you will be an expert in no time.

    I love my air fryer, especially for how easy it makes cooking, and sometimes baking. Frozen rolls in the air fryer is a great idea!

    I have an air fryer, but would have never even thought about making rolls in it. Now, I realize that it’s the perfect way to prepare them. Thanks for the idea.

    Tried using my air fryer to make rolls and it was an epic fail. The tops were browned but the bottom was very doughy. I placed the rolls in a round foil pan and let the rolls rise as per package directions. Then made them in the air fryer as suggested.

    1. Sorry to hear that. Could you let us know what brand of rolls you used, the size/weight and the brand/model of air fryer. That can help us problem solve. Each air fryer runs are bit differently and we’d love to help you learn how to use yours to make frozen rolls.
