Let's Make It
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.
