2 lb. Italian sausage, casings removed
3 tbsp. all-purpose flour
2 1/2 c. milk
Freshly ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 375° and grease a 9"-x-13" baking pan with cooking spray. In a large skillet over medium heat, add sausage and cook, breaking up meat with a wooden spoon, until no longer pink, about 6 minutes. Add flour and cook 1 minute more. Pour in milk and whisk to combine. Season with salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until thickened, 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
Cut biscuits into quarters and add half to prepared pan. Pour gravy over biscuits, then top with remaining biscuits. Brush biscuits with melted butter and season with black pepper. Bake until golden and cooked through, 20 minutes.
Garnish with chives before serving.
