These circular grayish/white seedlings poured up in the midst of my tomato seedlings. There was no sign of them 2 days ago, and now they're already as big as the tomato seedlings.

They're mushrooms. Not sure what kind but they won't harm your tomato seedlings.

Will they be edible? And did I do something to accidently grow them up? That's never happened to me before

I wouldn't risk eating never know if they're poisonous or not.
They're the result of decaying organic matter in the soil, so, nothing to be alarmed about.

Mike, I'd definitely have to agree. With things like mushrooms, you never want to take a chance.
Love is patient and love is kind. Always be loving and kind to one another.
