  • Get out three bowls. In the first bowl crack the eggs and add milk and beat together. In a second bowl add the flour. In the last bowl add the panko crumbs, cheese, and seasonings.
  • Dip each of the tomato slices in the flour first and coat evenly then into the egg mixture evenly and lastly into the panko crumb. Repeat for all the slice tomatoes.
  • Turn a stove burner on to med high and in a large frying pan add butter and oil enough to get the crumbs coated nicely to brown the panko crumbs.
