1. Prepare outdoor grill for direct grilling over medium-high heat. In large bowl, gently mix beef, sauce, salt and pepper; do not overmix. Divide beef mixture into 24 balls; flatten into 1/4-inch-thick patties. Place 1 cheese cube in center of 12 patties; top with remaining 12 patties. Pinch edges of patties together to seal; use hands to round edges. Make shallow indentation in center of each patty; spray with cooking spray.

2. Place patties on hot grill rack; cover and cook 8 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 160°, turning once. During last minute of cooking, place buns, cut side down, on hot grill rack; cook 1 minute or until lightly toasted.

3. In large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion; cook 5 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. Add garlic; cook 1 minute or until fragrant, stirring frequently.

4. Serve sliders in buns topped with arugula and onion mixture.
