Deploying docker to AWS without load balancing

I create software solutions for customers and I usually deploy 2 environments for each customer: QA and production. I am using ECS to deploy containers and cloudfront to deploy static websites.

Some of my customers dont require the scalability and overhead of ECS. I also dont require it for the QA environments. The end result is that for a solution with 2 ECS clusters I pay x5 then my actual usage (35$ for load balancer usage, extras for fargate instances etc)

Is there a way I can simply deploy a container into a single instance without scalability and without load balancing so my monthly bill will simply include the 10$ (t2.nano) I pay for running EC2 instance?
