What You Need

lb.  baking potatoes (about 5) , peeled, quartered
cups  oil, divided
small  green pepper, finely chopped
cup  finely chopped onions
cloves  garlic, minced
tsp.  dried oregano leaves
can  (5 oz.) white tuna in water, drained, flaked
cup  KRAFT Shredded Cheddar Cheese
cup   chopped green olives, divided
 egg, beaten
cup  flour
cup  KRAFT Real Mayo Mayonnaise

Make It

COOK potatoes in boiling water 20 min. or until tender; drain. Place in medium bowl; mash until smooth. Refrigerate 1 hour or until chilled.

MEANWHILE, heat 2 tsp. oil in medium skillet on medium heat. Add peppers, onions, garlic and oregano; cook 5 min., stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Stir in tuna, cheese and 2 Tbsp. olives.

HEAT remaining oil in medium saucepan to 375ºF. Using lightly floured hands, shape potato mixture into 8 (3-inch) balls, using about 1/3 cup potato mixture for each. Make large indentation in center of each; fill with about 1/4 cup tuna mixture, pressing tuna mixture into center of ball to completely enclose filling. Re-roll into balls, if necessary. Beat egg in small bowl; place flour in separate bowl. Dip potato balls, 1 at a time, in egg, then roll in flour until evenly coated.

ADD potato balls, 2 at a time, to hot oil; cook 5 to 6 min. or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Mix remaining olives and mayo. Serve with the warm potato balls.
