Q: Whenever I crack an egg (with two hands or one), egg white spills on the counter. Is there a technique to avoid this mess?

Editor: This happens to me too! I usually crack eggs against the counter, and at least a little egg white always seems to spill out before I get it in the mixing bowl. What about cracking the egg against the inside wall of the bowl? I'll try it next time!

Readers, have any of you discovered a great way to crack eggs without making a mess on the counter?

Next question?
