   stock, bay leaf and lemon juice in same pan.  Bring to
   a simmer over medium heat.  Break eggs, one at a time
   into a saucer and slip into hot broth.  Poach until
   whites are set but yolks are still liquid (4 minutes).
   With a slotted spoon, carefully transfer each egg to a
   warm soup bowl. Ladle broth over eggs and sprinkle
   with croutons. Makes 6 cups.
