    Pour in half the milk and whisk until the mixture starts to thicken, about 1 minute, before adding the remaining milk. Whisk continuously for 5 minutes; season with salt, pepper and smoked paprika.

    Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 10 minutes. Halfway through cooking, add ½ tbsp. chopped parsley; stir well. When ready to serve, spoon over biscuits and sprinkle on the remaining parsley.
