How do you keep buns warm in a crockpot? Do you have to warm them first? Or do they warm well in the crockpot? And how long should you give them to heat up? Should you line the crockpot with a towel and dampen it? This is for a potluck where I need to heat them first at home and keep them warm, hopefully.

I don't know if it will work but what about a ice chest, put some heated towels in to get it warm and then put the rolls in straight from the oven.

I did this last year for Thanksgiving dinner with my homemade crescent rolls. I baked them a couple days ahead of time. Then put a damp fingertip towel in the slow cooker, and a dry paper towel on top of the damp towel, arranged my rolls, covered all with another towel, a dry one. The only mistake I made was to set the heat on"warm" instead of "low". I have a pretty hot crock pot. It simmers hard on warm, and it scorched my towel and the rolls that were on the bottom, but the rest of them were perfect. So this should work for you very well, but just use the "Low" setting instead of the "Warm". I don't like to warm them in the microwave because if you leave them a little too long, they turn tough.

I like the idea of warming buns in a crock pot. Another idea is to use one of those casserole dishes that comes with the warming pad. You know, the kind that looks like a brief case and zips up.

Make sure when entertaining to use your crockpot to heat up side dishes such as canned veggies, or use it to keep mashed potatoes or a soup warm.

While it's easiest to put out a lot of food at once, you can save a lot of waste and possibly prevent some food poisoning by putting food out in smaller batches and replacing it as it runs out.
