In a heavy skillet, heat the vegetable oil over medium heat.
In a medium size bowl, whisk eggs and milk together.
Scoop flour onto a plate.
Combine cornmeal, breadcrumbs, salt and pepper and put on another plate.
Dip the sliced tomatoes into flour and then into the milk and egg mixture. Dredge in breadcrumb mixture to completely coat both sides.
Test the oil by adding a pinch of cornmeal and if it bubbles to the top it's ready.
Carefully fry the tomato slices for 3 to 4 minutes each side.
Remove and drain on paper towels.
