Slice the tomatoes into slices that are about ½ inch thick and discard the ends. In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs and milk together. Scoop the flour onto a plate. Mix the cornmeal, breadcrumbs, and salt and pepper onto another plate. Dip the sliced tomatoes into flour to coat and then dip them into the milk and egg mix. Cover the tomatoes in a coat of the breadcrumbs. In a skillet, heat the vegetable oil over medium heat and place 4 or 5 tomatoes into the frying pan at a time. Make sure the tomatoes don’t touch each other. When the tomatoes are browned, flip them over. Then drain them on the paper towels.
