  4. in another whisk together milk and eggs;
  5. and in a third mix together breadcrumbs, corn meal, cayenne, salt, and pepper.
  6. Dip each tomato slice in the flour mixture, then in the egg to coat completely, and then into the seasoned breadcrumb mixture.
  7. Add about 1/4-inch oil, and the butter, to a large skillet over medium heat.
  8. When the butter melts, and the foam begins to turn from white to tan, add enough slices to fill pan, but not crowd. Fry until browned on each side, about 3 to 4 minutes.
