(Combine all ingredients and mix together well.)
1. In large bowl, break up ground chuck and add salt and pepper; mix gently until well combined. Divide into four equal portions; divide each portion in half, then form each half into 4-inch diameter patty.
2. In another bowl, combine cheeses. Press mixture into four 1 1/2-inch rounds; place one round on top of each of four of patties. Top each with another patty, pressing edges together to seal.
3. Preheat barbecue grill to medium-high, brushing rack with oil, or preheat broiler.
4. Grill or broil burgers to desired degree of doneness, about 3 minutes per side for rare, 4 minutes for medium or 5 minutes for well-done.
5. Meanwhile, grill or broil buns until lightly toasted and onion slices until lightly colored.
6. Place burgers on bun bottoms and top with onions. Add tomato, arugula and some of Zesty Three Cheese Sauce. Add bun tops and serve.
