Aoli is a garlic mayonnaise, originally from the Provence region of France. It's used as a condiment for potatoes, fish, and vegetables.

Directions
1. 
In a large skillet, cook sausage over medium-high heat for approximately 8 to 10 minutes, or until done and crumbled. Remove sausage to a paper-towel-lined plate and keep warm. Drain grease from skillet, reserving 1/4 cup.
2. 
Return reserved 1/4 cup grease to skillet. Add flour, whisking well to combine. Cook over medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned, stirring frequently.
3. 
Add milk, 1/2 cup at a time, whisking well after each addition. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes after each addition, or until thickened, every time you add another 1/2 cup milk. Add cooked sausage, salt, and pepper.
4. 
Serve over Virginia's Biscuits.

1. 
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
2. 
In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Using a pastry blender, cut shortening into flour until coarsely blended. Make a well in flour mixture and add milk, stirring until just combined.
3. 
Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Dust dough with flour and knead lightly 7 or 8 times. Roll dough to a 1-inch thickness. Cut into 2 1/2-inch circles without twisting cutter, rerolling scraps as little as necessary. Place rounds on prepared baking sheet.
4. 
Bake for 12 minutes, or until golden brown. Brush tops with melted butter.
