What is this Sicilian dish?

I grew up with a Sicilian grandfather who was an amazing cook. As is usually the case with amazing grandparent cooks, he never wrote anything down. I know the recipe in general, I just don't know what to call it.

I remember eating this meat dish that is basically pounded beef/veal that is coated in bread crumbs and parmesan and then fried. We ate it next to spaghetti with home made sauce. I know the basic recipe, and I've found similar ones in several places online (it's delicious, by the way).
The recipes I've found refer to this as "Sicilian Breaded Steak" or something similar. We called it something like "googaletti". I'm pretty sure that this is not the correct spelling or even the correct name.
What is this dish really called in Italian? Any idea why my family calls it googaletti?
