Transfer to a large floured work surface, sprinkle the top with more flour and pat the dough into a round about 1” thick. Using a 2” round cutter, cut out as many biscuits as you can.
Form the dough into a round once more and cut rounds of whats left.

In a large saute pan over medium-high heat add the sausage, breaking it apart with a wooden spoon and saute for 7-10 minutes until cooked through.
Add flour and stir to coat. Add the milk, a generous splash at a time, whisking after each addition until all of the milk has been incorporated.
Allow the sauce to bubble for 5-7 minutes, just until slightly thickened. Remove from heat and set aside.
To quickly warm the milk, place it a microwave safe measuring pitcher and heat for 45 seconds to 1 minute.
