2 teaspoons vegetable oil

8 ounces breakfast sausage, removed from casings

2 scallions, whites and greens sliced separately

2 scallions, whites and greens sliced separately 

1 small clove garlic, minced

1/8 teaspoon ground allspice

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

1 cup milk

1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth

1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

8 rounds store-bought biscuit dough 


Special equipment:
a waffle iron
  1. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sausage and cook, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, until browned and cooked through, about 5 minutes. 
  2. Add the scallion whites, garlic, allspice, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; stir for 30 seconds. Add the flour and stir until toasted, about 1 minute. Pour in the milk and chicken broth and simmer, stirring, until thick, 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in the scallion greens and parsley. Cover and keep warm over low heat. 
  3. Preheat a waffle iron to medium-high heat. Place 1 biscuit round into each section of your waffle iron, close gently (don't push down) and cook until golden and cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. Repeat with the remaining biscuits. 
  4. Place 2 biscuits on each plate and top with the sausage gravy.
