Chicken Fried Steak variations

I would like to hear about your variations on the classic Chicken Fried Steak and/or how you serve it.

I make mine by breading and frying cube steak and then I top it with a slice of tomatoe, a couple of slices of avacado, and then a slice of swiss cheese. I pop it under the broiler for a few minutes to melt the chese.

I'm not sure what the classic version is. I've made it with both white gravy and brown gravy from the skillet is was cooking in.
Pounded (tenderized) cube steak dredged in seasoned flour, egg wash with a little hot sauce, then dredged again. Fried, flipped, a little stock added for steaming, covered, 15 minutes later I'm eating.

Creamed gravy with lots of cracked pepper, mashed potato, overcooked peas or carrots as a side.

Cubed steak, breaded and fried in bacon grease. In another pan, fry up breakfast sausage and make a cream gravy out of it with a whole bunch of pepper. Now it depends on whether you are eating breakfast, lunch or dinner what gets served with it.

Locally they bread and deep fry a tenderized cube steak, then smother it with thick white gravy and serve it with hash browns and biscuits. You can hear arteries pop and snap, and paramedics are put on standby whenever anyone receives that breakfast platter!

Yeah, I'm not supposed to eat it anymore...I do anyway, I figure either the Lipitor knocks it out or the steak wins.
