Place one slice of cheese on each patty; cook, covered, for 1 minute or until melted.

Meanwhile, heat remaining oil on flat-top or griddle and sauté onions for 10 to 15 minutes or until tender and caramelized.

Mix remaining Honey Garlic Sauce, Sweet Chili Sauce and ketchup together. Serve with Patty Melts as a dipping sauce.
