Number of Servings: 6


    1/2 c Olive Oil
    2 tbs butter (salted)
    1 can Anchovie Filets (2oz)
    1 cup fresh garlic (3-4 whole cloves)


Peel the garlic. Can be cut or chopped, or left as is.
Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and simmer over low heat for 45-60 minutes, or until garlic is soft and golden brown, and anchovies are dissolved, stirring occasionally.
Transfer to a fondue pot or chafing dish to keep warm.
Garnish with chopped parsley, serve with fresh vegetables or crusty whole grain bread. A butter spreader will be useful to spread the soft garlic on bread.
Excellent with wine or a cold beer.

Alternate cooking method:
Bake ingredients in a covered casserole at 300 degrees for about 1 hour.

Serving size:
Since this is a dip, serving size is difficult to determine; however, this recipe is about right for 4-6 people enjoying an evening of good conversation, good wine, and good jazz.

Number of Servings: 6

    SECRETFUN- He will love it. You can find more Bagna Calda recipes online. The recipe varies only slightly, mine has less oil and more garlic than most. I also use the anchovies with capers- delicious! I couldn't really distinguish the flavor of the capers, but it worked beautifully.
