WIW: Waffled Biscuits & Gravy
In truth, making the sausage in a pan seems easier to me.Â Making the gravy in a pan while the biscuits cook in the waffle iron would be easy though.
2 Scallions, chopped, whites and greens separated
1 clove of Garlic, minced
1/3 C. all-purpose flour
3 to 4 C. whole milk, more to taste (you can sub part with chicken broth for a lighter gravy)
1/2 tsp. seasoned salt
2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper, more to taste
Pinch nutmeg, optional
8 rounds Store Bought Biscuit Dough
With your finger, tear small pieces of sausage and add them in a single layer to a large heavy skillet. Brown the sausage over medium-high heat until no longer pink. Add the scallion whites and garlic and stir for 30 seconds. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Sprinkle on half the flour and stir so that the sausage soaks it all up, then add more, little by little. Stir it around and cook it for another minute or so, then pour in the milk, stirring constantly. Cook the gravy, stirring frequently, until it thickens. (This may take a good 10 to 12 minutes.) Sprinkle in the seasoned salt and pepper (and nutmeg if using) and continue cooking until very thick and luscious. If it gets too thick too soon, just splash in another 1/2 C. of milk or more if needed. Taste and adjust the seasoning.
Meanwhile, 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.
Spoon the sausage gravy over warm biscuit waffles and serve.
