I do the same thing. I don't use the raw entry because there is no weight measurement. Depending on the size of the dice in the potato a cup can vary wildly. I also use this website when I can't find anything close: http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/index.html

You probably won't get exact for crockpot potatoes, but I think baked is a good substitute.

I use the entry: potato, raw
I can then enter by size or by cup measurement.
If I roast with oil, then add that as a seperate entry.

The cooking method doesn't really matter unless you're adding something to it; roasting won't provide an appreciable difference in nutrient content. When your'e cooking them in the crockpot, again, it doesn't change, unless you're cooking it in something; in which case, you're going to also count the thing you're cooking it in.

I just made a pot roast with red baby potatoes. I just entered red potatoes in my tracker, and counted te other ingredients separately. :)

I was actually wondering this same thing earlier today. I'd guess they'd be about the same, as long as you're making sure the weights are correct.

In the nutrition tracker I can find baked potato with skin but I can't find when you cook potatoes any other way...like if you roast them in the oven I count the olive oil and then just call them baked potatoes even though they are roasted.

And when I cook them in the crock pot...I can't find potatoes cooked in the crock pot...so I just still call it a baked potato.

Any ideas?
