  1. 1.Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. 2.Poke several holes in each potato using a fork. Place the potatoes on a baking sheet and bake for 45-50 minutes, or until tender.
  3. 3.While the potatoes are baking, prepare the crab filling. In a bowl, combine the crab meat, mayonnaise, Parmesan cheese, parsley, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Mix well.
  4. 4.When the potatoes are done, remove them from the oven and let them cool slightly. Cut a slit in the top of each potato and gently squeeze the ends to open up the slit. Use a fork to fluff the insides of the potatoes.
  5. 5.Divide the crab filling evenly among the potatoes, spooning it into the slits.
  6. 6.Return the potatoes to the oven and bake for an additional 10 minutes, or until the filling is heated through and slightly golden.
  7. 7.While the potatoes are baking, prepare the garlic green beans. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add minced garlic and cook for 1 minute, until fragrant.
  8. 8.Add the green beans to the skillet and season with salt and pepper. Cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the green beans are tender-crisp.
  9. 9.Serve the crab-stuffed potatoes with a side of garlic green beans. Enjoy!
