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

Fresh green beans cooking in a deep skillet.

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.

Green beans tossed with vinaigrette and placed in a baking dish.

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.

Breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese topping added to green beans.

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.

  1. Would it be possible to use canned beans in this recipe and just cook them for a short period of time?

    1. Yes! To use canned green beans, just skip the initial cooking step. Drain the beans and add them to the baking dish.

  2. 5 stars
    YUM! easy to make and delicious…just the change my green beans needed

  3. Definitely a great way to spice up green beans! I think I’ll have to add this to our dinner rotation!

    1. Lana Stuart says:

      And it goes with almost anything, Anita. I think you’ll really enjoy it.

  4. I’m so boring when it comes to green beans but I love your recipe! This sounds delicious.

    1. Lana Stuart says:

      Hope you’ll give it a try, Susan. Shake up those boring old green beans for a change!

  5. 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.

    1. Lana Stuart says:

      I really hope you enjoy it, Bev. The caesar flavors really make it special :-)

  6. Gosh, these are easy enough for a weeknight, yet gourmet enough for company or a holiday! LOVE these beans, Lana :)

    1. Lana Stuart says:

      Thanks, Liz! These make a really nice side for Thanksgiving in place of the old classic green bean casserole.

  7. Ginny McMeans says:

    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!

    1. Lana Stuart says:

      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!

  8. Martha @ A Family Feast says:

    What a great idea – the ‘caesar’ flavors must be fantastic with the green beans! I’m definitely making this recipe very soon…

    1. Lana Stuart says:

      They are, Martha, and it’s always nice to have something a bit different to do with boring old green beans!

  9. Isabelle @ Crumb says:

    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!

  11. heather | girlichef says:

    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!

    1. Lana Stuart says:

      I always enjoy a fun little side dish, Heather, something different from the usual steamed-with-butter.

  12. 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 :)
