  • Heat barbecue to medium-high heat.
  • Melt butter in medium skillet on medium heat. Add onions; simmer on medium-low 20 min. or until onions are light golden brown, stirring occasionally and adding water 1 Tbsp. at a time as needed to prevent onions from drying out and sticking to bottom of skillet. Stir in 2 Tbsp. barbecue sauce; simmer on medium-low heat 10 min. or until dark golden brown, stirring frequently. Remove from heat.
  • Mix meat, garlic and 1/4 cup of the remaining barbecue sauce just until blended; shape into 4 (1/2-inch-thick) patties.
  • Grill 6 to 7 min. on each side or until done (160°F), brushing with remaining barbecue sauce for the last 5 min. Top with Kraft Singles. Add buns, cut sides down, to barbecue. Grill 1 min. or until Singles are melted and buns are lightly toasted.
  • Place cheeseburgers on bottom halves of buns; top with caramelized onions and arugula. Cover with tops of buns.

Serving Suggestion

Serve with a colourful fresh green salad tossed with Kraft Extra Virgin Olive Oil Aged Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing.

How to Keep Burger from Puffing Up

Use 2 knuckles to make shallow depression in centre of each patty. This will help keep them from puffing up as they cook on the barbecue.

Keeping it Safe

Always wash hands after handling raw meat. Never place cooked food on the same platter that the raw food was placed on. Use clean plates for cooked meats. Discard any leftover barbecue sauce that has been in contact with raw meat, fish or poultry.
