If you use extra virgin olive oil in place of the vegetable oil, it will be spectacular...I promise. I love bagna calda with endive lettuce leaves (if you can find them) and red peppers, but when the calda gets cold and thick, it makes a fantastic spread for bread or tortillas.

Wow, yes olive oil makes it spectacular! Also, the sardines I had on hand were packed in hot sauce, not oil...added a nice kick to this.

It's even better if you use FRESH anchovies and the extra virgin olive oil
