Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Mix meat and MIRACLE WHIP just until blended. Shape into 4 (1/2-inch-thick) patties.
  • Heat 1 Tbsp. of the Italian dressing in large nonstick skillet on medium heat. Add onions; stir. Cook on medium-low heat 10 min. or until onions are tender and golden brown, stirring occasionally. Remove onions from skillet; reserve for later use.
  • Heat oven to 400°F. Add meat patties to skillet; cook on medium heat 5 to 6 min. on each side or until done (160°F). Remove from heat.
  • Spray baking sheet with cooking spray. Brush bread with remaining Italian dressing. Place 4 bread slices, dressing sides down, on prepared baking sheet; top with 2% Milk Singles, onions and meat patties. Cover with remaining bread slices, dressing sides up.
  • Bake 20 min., turning sandwiches after 10 min.

For Best Results

The addition of MIRACLE WHIP to these patties makes them more flavorful, but also more fragile. For fool-proof cooked patties, flip the patties just once during the cooking process, as directed in recipe, and use just the 2 Tbsp. measure of MIRACLE WHIP listed in recipe.

Use Your Grill

For extra flavor, cook the meat patties on your grill instead of cooking them in the skillet.

Makeover Savings

Save 7g of fat and 70 calories per serving by preparing with extra-lean ground beef, MIRACLE WHIP Light Dressing and KRAFT 2% Milk Singles and by using KRAFT Lite Zesty Italian Dressing to cook the onions in and use as a spread for the bread instead of the butter.

Substitute

Prepare using KRAFT DELI DELUXE 2% Milk Process American Cheese Slices.

Ratings & Reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Overall this was not a totally bad recipe but could use some alterations. Overall this was not a totally bad recipe but could use some alterations. First of all using miracle whip with the ground beef did not add much flavor to the meat. It did add moisture to the meat while frying but the patty's fell apart too easily, and the meat did not have a very good texture to it. Maybe using an egg and some other types of seasonings would work better. Also the bread became to toasty (practically burnt) in the oven, maybe lowering the temperature or shortening the time in the oven may prevent this from happening. I prefer using cooking spray or margarine on a flat grill or a frying pan to brown bread on each side for just a few minutes. This is one that I may make again but with some adjustments.

Of course right after telling my friend that I have been making so many Kraft recipes and have loved them all....I made this and it was horrible. The miracle whip makes the hamburgers fall part. I ended up making "loose" meat sandwiches to save dinner. Of course then after 18 min in the oven I checked on the Melts and they were burning! It ended up taking me an hour to salvage this dinner. I won't be making this again.

I made this recipe and added the miracle whip to the hamburger - that was a big mistake! My patties did not stick together at all and don't know the reasoning behind adding miracle whip to hamburger. Next time I make patty melts I will make my hamburgers as usual on the grille and not add any miracle whip. I was very disappointed in this recipe. I will not be making this again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I was quite excited when I found this recipe. I was quite excited when I found this recipe. We all love burgers especially patty melts but we were quite disappointed. I followed the recipe but when we dug in, the taste was very bland. We was not impressed. Other patty melts we've made have been superb but not this one. Not something I'll probably make again or if I do, add some flavor.

I ended up just spooning the meat "mixture" onto the patties and that's how we ate them. Had to use forks to eat. They did taste good however. I'll make them again but will add an egg and mabye some bread crumbs to bind them together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These were fabulous. These were fabulous. I cooked mushrooms in the italian dressing instead of onions. Used marble rye bread and swiss cheese. Turned out terrific! The only thing I will do differently is wrap the edges with foil when they go in the over to prevent them from getting too dry.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Delicious! Delicious! Satisfied my cheeseburger craving one night. They DO fall apart during cooking...added 1/4 cup of plain breadcrumbs to help hold them together. Works best if you cook on med. and ONLY flip once. When mixing, try to handle as little as possible. That should help.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The burgers had a great taste but were impossible to flip. The burgers had a great taste but were impossible to flip. The Miracle Whip really added flavor though so it was worth the challenge. The bake time was way too much for my oven. The bread was very hard. I'll make these again but I'll only bake for 6-8 minutes total.
