What You Need

2
lb.  baking potatoes (about 5) , peeled, quartered
2
cups  oil, divided
1
small  green pepper, finely chopped
1/3
cup  finely chopped onions
2
cloves  garlic, minced
1
tsp.  dried oregano leaves
1
can  (5 oz.) white tuna in water, drained, flaked
2/3
cup  KRAFT Shredded Cheddar Cheese
1/4
cup   chopped green olives, divided
1
 egg, beaten
1/4
cup  flour
1/2
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.
