Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Put the spinach in a colander and pour over a kettleful of boiling water to wilt it. Leave to cool then squeeze out as much excess water as you can. Chop the spinach then put in a bowl and mix in 1/2 the cream, 1/2 the gruyère and lots of seasoning. Spoon the spinach mix into the bottom of 4 large individual buttered ramekins or baking dishes approximately 12cm wide and 5cm deep.
Top each filled ramekin with the haddock and crack a duck egg over the top. Spoon over the rest of the cream, add the rest of the cheese, season, then put the ramekins in a small roasting tin and pour in boiling water to come halfway up the outside of each. Bake for 15-20 minutes depending on how set you want your egg. Sprinkle over the chives and serve with soldiers for dipping (make your own sourdough soldiers with our expert guide here).
