What You Need

clove  garlic, minced
lb.   lean ground beef
cup   chopped onions
Tbsp.  KRAFT Original Barbecue Sauce
large   green plantains, cut lengthwise and crosswise in half
cup  KRAFT Zesty Italian Dressing, divided
cup  KRAFT Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
cups   shredded lettuce
 tomato, cut into 6 slices

Make It

MIX sour cream and garlic; cover. Refrigerate until ready to use. Meanwhile, mix meat, onions and barbecue sauce. Shape into six 1/2-inch-thick ovals, about 6-in long; set aside.

COOK plantains in 1 Tbsp. of the dressing in large skillet on medium heat 3 to 5 min. Add 1 Tbsp. dressing to skillet. Turn plantains over; cover. Cook an additional 3 to 4 min. or until tender and lightly brown on both sides. Use slotted spoon to transfer plantains to a working surface; flatten, one by one, with a small cutting board to 1/4-inch thickness. Working in batches, heat 1 Tbsp. of dressing in skillet, return 3 to 4 flattened plantains to skillet; cook 1 min. on each side or until golden brown on both sides. Remove from skillet; keep warm. Repeat with remaining plantains, using more dressing if needed.

MEANWHILE, heat 1 Tbsp. of the dressing in large skillet on medium heat. Cook patties in batches 3 to 5 min. on each side or until cooked through (165°F). Remove burgers from skillet. Cover to keep warm.

PLACE 1 of the plantain halves, cut-side up, on each of six serving plates; spread with sour cream mixture. Top each with 1 of the burgers, 1/4 cup shredded lettuce, 1 tomato slice , about 2 Tbsp. of the shredded cheese and second plantain half.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

How to Peel Plantains
Place plantains in very hot water for easier peeling; let them sit in the water for a few minutes. Cut off about 1 inch from both ends; make 2 lengthwise cuts at opposite ends of the plantain. Slide your hand under the skin and begin to pull it away, going from top to bottom. Soak the peeled plantains in salted water until ready to use. Drain on a paper towel before cooking with them.
How to Flatten the Plantains
Place plantains, cut-sides down, on cutting board. Use second cutting board or flat dish to evenly flatten plantains, then add to hot skillet to brown as directed.
Cooking Know How
It is best to cook plantains in batches, keep warm as you continue cooking the next batch.
