Please help me bake these rolls!?!

I am trying to break the bread machine habit, while also going back to making all of our breads and things from scratch. Lol
We like to make 'subs' with turkey or ham about once a week. I have this roll recipe that always turns out amazing in the bread machine. My family loves them. I started making them a little bigger and letting them rise a little longer before baking. They have been great to replace the sub deli rolls I had been buying at the store. Plus the ones I had been buying kept going bad before we could use them up.
Since I am trying to start making bread by hand and the fact it has been so long since I made bread by hand..I need help! Lol we love this recipe and I need to know how to go about making it by hand. I also plan to double it. That is another issue I have with the bread machine. My family has grown enough that the small amounts the machine makes almost isn't worth it.
Ok..so here is the recipe. Please tell me what I need to do to make them...

3 cups flour
3 tablespoons white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup dry milk powder
1 cup warm water
2 tablespoons melted butter
1 package active dry yeast.

As of right now I put all the ingredients in the machine and press the dough cycle. When it is done I knead it a little, form into rolls, let rise and bake.
I need to know how to make the dough by hand.
I realise this sounds pathetic that I don't remember how to do this. But it is what it is.
Can anyone help me?

 Dissolve the yeast in the water then add your butter..add your sugar, salt, milk powder. Add flour last till dough is formed. Probably will be sticky a little. Knead on floured surface usually around 5-10 minutes till smooth and elastic place in greased bowl and rise. Go about it as you would from there. It should be fine! These are the steps I use for my breads.

Ooh! That sounds delicious! Meatball subs are on our meal plan for sometime in the next few weeks. I am going to attempt to make the longer sub buns and may try to add some italian seasoning to it.

 Here is my white bread recipie...

6-7 cups all purpose flour

3 tb sugar

1 tb salt

2 tb sugar

2 pkg's regular dry active yeast

2 1/2 cups very warm water (120-130 degrees)

Mix 3 1/2 c of the flour, sugar, salt, shortening, and yeast. Add warm water. Mix together for about a minute. Add remaining flour till dough is formed. Knead dough on floured surface for about 10 minutes till elastic. Place in greased bowl. Let rise about one hour till double.

Punch down dough. Divide into halves. Let rest for 5 minutes. Flatten dough into a rectangle and roll to make a loaf. seal ends. Place loaf seam side down into 2 9x5x3 in pans. Brush loafs with margerine. Let rise again till double about 45-50 minutes.

Heat oven to 425. Place on lowest rack. Bake for about 30 minutes till brown and the bottoms sound hollow when you tap on bottom of loaf.
