Ingredients:

For the Crust:

  • 2 tablespoons of salted butter
  • 1 minced garlic clove
  • 1/2 teaspoon of dried oregano
  • 1 (16 oz.) tube of refrigerated biscuit dough

For the Filling:

  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 pound of loose Italian sausage
  • 2 tablespoons of salted butter
  • 1 thinly sliced onion
  • 3 sliced red bell peppers
  • 3 thinly sliced garlic cloves
  • 1 teaspoon of dried oregano
  • 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups of low-sodium chicken broth
  • Kosher salt and black pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Start with the crust: In a small microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter and mix in the minced garlic and dried oregano. Set this savory mixture aside.
  2. Let’s prepare the filling: In a 9-inch cast-iron skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the Italian sausage and cook until it’s no longer pink, breaking it up with a wooden spoon. This should take about 4 to 5 minutes. Once done, use a slotted spoon to transfer the sausage to a bowl, then discard the excess oil and wipe the skillet clean.
  3. Return the skillet to medium heat, add the butter, and let it melt. Add the thinly sliced onion, bell peppers, garlic, and oregano. Cook and stir until the vegetables become tender, which should take approximately 6 to 8 minutes.
  4. Now, for the filling’s creamy base: Sprinkle the flour over the vegetables in the skillet and stir. Add the chicken broth and increase the heat to medium-high. Bring the mixture to a simmer, whisking continuously until there are no lumps of flour left. Continue to simmer until the mixture thickens, which takes about 3 to 4 minutes. Reintroduce the cooked sausage to the skillet and season with salt and pepper.
  5. It’s time to assemble your masterpiece! Arrange the biscuit dough rounds on top of the savory filling in the skillet (you might have a leftover biscuit). Brush the biscuits with the garlic-infused butter. Bake your creation until the biscuits are puffed and golden, which typically takes 18 to 22 minutes. Allow it to cool for about 5 minutes before serving.
