  3. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder and brown sugar. In a 2 cup measuring cup, measure out the milk and then add the water, egg and olive oil. Whisk until blended. Pour over the flour mixture and them mix with a wooden spoon until thick and lumpy. Fold in the cheddar cheese and crumbled cooked sausage.
  4. Scoop the batter into the muffin cups using a cookie scoop. Fill each cup about ⅔ full.
