    You can make it in smaller quantities too - even for one person - using spinach frozen in individual portions (make sure its Belgian or New Zealand product, as I don't trust the Chinese product). Just use a ramikin for each person, and first poach your egg(s) in the ramikin (put one-half cup cold water in the ramikin, break your egg into the water, and microwave - 800 watt - for 1 minute - the time may be more or less depending on how you like your egg). You can also use white sauce mix to make things even easier (the powdered kind is healthier than the ready made pouches, though it is still a little high in salt)
