For the sausage gravy: In a 12 inch cast iron skillet, heat a splash of olive oil over medium heat. Add the shallots and cook for 3 minutes until fragrant and softened. Remove the casings from the sausage and break into small pieces. Add the sausage to the skillet with the shallots and brown over medium high heat until cooked through and no longer pink.
Reduce the heat to medium-low and add half of the flour to coat the sausage, combine well. Add the the other have and stir. Pour in the milk, starting with 3 cups and adding to thin out as the gravy thickens. Cook the gravy for 10-12 minutes until it is nice, thick and creamy, adding more milk as needed. Season with the salt, pepper and nutmeg. Taste and adjust any seasoning. Top with fresh parsley and serve immediately with warmed biscuits.
