This is the one that Mom made when I was growing up. You can use either yams or sweet potatoes in this, I prefer the orange colored yams.

That Good Yam Casserole

4 medium yams -- cooked and peeled
8 ounces crushed pineapple in juice -- drained
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup butter
dash salt
2 cups miniature marshmallows

Mash yams and stir in remaining ingredients except marshmallows. Pour into a buttered 2 qt. casserole. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 30 minutes or until heated through. Top with marshmallows. Broil for a couple of minutes to brown the top of the marshmallows.
