What You Need

1
lb.  potatoes, peeled, quartered
1/2
tsp.  salt
1/4
cup  oil, divided
2
tsp.   paprika or annatto seasoning, divided
1/4
cup  chopped onion
1
cup  KRAFT Shredded Mozzarella Cheese

Make It

BRING 2 quarts water to boil in large saucepan. Add potatoes and salt. Cook 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender; drain. Place in large bowl; mash until smooth.

HEAT 2 Tbsp. of the oil in medium skillet on medium heat. Add onions and 1 tsp. of the paprika; cook and stir until onions are tender. Stir into the mashed potatoes; cool. Stir in cheese. Shape evenly into 6 (1-inch-thick) patties.

MIX remaining 2 Tbsp. oil and 1 tsp. paprika until well blended. Heat large nonstick skillet, griddle or cast iron skillet on medium heat. Brush a little of the oil mixture onto bottom of pan. Add patties; cook 3 minutes or until bottom is crisp and golden brown. Brush tops of patties with remaining oil mixture; turn over. Cook an additional 3 minutes or until crisp and golden brown on both sides. Serve each patty topped with 2 Tbsp. of the Peanut Sauce.
