Green Beans Caesar
These Green Beans Caesar are a delicious side dish and a change of pace from the usual steamed beans. Goes with anything from chicken to pork to fish.
What’s your go-to side dish for almost any meal? If you’re like 99% of the people I know, it’s green beans. They go with almost anything and when I just can’t think of something to prep along with dinner, I always know I can whip up some green beans. Yep, good old green beans. Boring old green beans. I cook them until I think, “I can’t eat another green bean!”
That’s why I’m always looking for more interesting ways to serve them. Sure, they’re delicious steamed with a bit of salt and butter added or cooked the old-fashioned southern way seasoned with a ham hock, but today I have something totally different – Green Beans Caesar.
I’ve tossed cooked green beans with a garlic vinaigrette and topped them with bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese. Pop the dish in the oven for a while and then serve. I could honestly make my whole dinner of just these beans and some bread. So good and so different. A great change of pace from the usual. Hope you enjoy them!
How to Make Green Beans Caesar
Wash the beans and remove the stem ends. Cook in a saucepan or skillet with enough water to cover for 20 minutes. Drain well.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In an ovenproof baking dish, combine the olive oil, red wine vinegar, garlic, salt, pepper, and oregano. Stir with a fork or whisk until well combined. Add the drained green beans and toss to coat.
In a small bowl, combine the melted butter and bread crumbs, mixing well. Sprinkle the bread crumb mixture and Parmesan cheese over the green beans.
Bake for 15-20 minutes.

Thanks, Rachael. So glad you enjoyed the recipe!
Definitely a great way to spice up green beans! I think I’ll have to add this to our dinner rotation!
And it goes with almost anything, Anita. I think you’ll really enjoy it.
I’m so boring when it comes to green beans but I love your recipe! This sounds delicious.
Hope you’ll give it a try, Susan. Shake up those boring old green beans for a change!
I am not a big fan of green beans. But, this actually sounds amazing. I am going to try this very soon. Going to Farmer’s Market to buy some fresh beans.
I really hope you enjoy it, Bev. The caesar flavors really make it special :-)
Gosh, these are easy enough for a weeknight, yet gourmet enough for company or a holiday! LOVE these beans, Lana :)
Thanks, Liz! These make a really nice side for Thanksgiving in place of the old classic green bean casserole.
A resounding Yes! Two of my favorite things combined. Ceasar salad dressing and fresh green beans. I really miss growing my own green beans this year. You’d better believe I won’t miss it next year!
I haven’t planted my own in a long, long time Ginny. I used to can them every year, but where we live now they’d just be fodder for the deer!
What a great idea – the ‘caesar’ flavors must be fantastic with the green beans! I’m definitely making this recipe very soon…
They are, Martha, and it’s always nice to have something a bit different to do with boring old green beans!
I’m literally up to my eyeballs with fresh green beans from my backyard vegetable patch, so this recipe couldn’t come at a better time… I was starting to run out of ideas to use them all up! :)
Hope you enjoy it, Isabelle. We certainly do!
This is such a great and creative way to mke green beans… Yummy!
Thanks, Tasha! I always need something different to do with green beans :-)
I agree, green beans go with pretty much anything. This is such a fun way to gussy them up a bit – love the flavors in a caesar!
I always enjoy a fun little side dish, Heather, something different from the usual steamed-with-butter.
Ditto that. Looking forward to one more quick crop of fresh beans from our garden soon and will try this. Thank you for your wonderful blog :)
Hope you enjoy the recipe, Deb. Thanks for reading!
