Green Beans Caesar is an easy and delicious green beans recipe that will
add tangy flavor and a delightful crispy and cheesy crunch to this popular vegetable side dish. Green beans are delicious on their own, perhaps with a pat of butter and a little salt, but I am always on the lookout for new green bean recipes, because variety truly is the spice of life!

This green bean recipe is very easy to put together, and is simply a matter of steaming the beans, transferring them to a casserole dish, adding an easy tangy sauce, then topping them with a buttery Parmesan and bread crumb topping. After 15 minutes in the oven, you'll have a tasty new way to serve your green beans with the added bonus of a delicious crispy and cheesy crumb topping! Green Beans Caesar will nicely accompany any meat, poultry or seafood main dish and is enjoyed by all ages.



  • 1 1/2 lbs. fresh green beans
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider or white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon instant minced onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons dry bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • paprika


Preheat oven to 350° F.

Trim beans to 1 to 1 1/2-inch pieces and rinse. Cook beans until crisp-tender (about 15 minutes). (Note: Steaming beans with a vegetable steamer is recommended for best results, though you can also gently boil beans in water).

While beans are cooking, in a medium mixing bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, minced onion, salt, garlic and pepper. Set aside. In a separate small mixing bowl, combine bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese and butter and stir until blended. Set aside.

As soon as beans are crisp-tender to the bite (be careful not to overcook, because beans will cook more in the oven), transfer to a large mixing bowl. Add oil and vinegar mixture to beans and toss until evenly coated. Pour beans into an ungreased 1-quart casserole dish. Sprinkle bread crumb mixture evenly over top of beans. Lightly sprinkle over all with paprika. Bake uncovered for 15-20 minutes or until heated through.
