In large skillet, saute turkey sausage over medium-high heat until no longer pink.

In another bowl, beat eggs, buttermilk and corn oil with whisk for about one minute.

Add to the flour mixture and stir with a spatula just until moistened, no more than 15 to 20 strokes.

Gently fold in corn, cheese and sausage. The mixture will be lumpy.

Evenly spoon batter into muffin tins (sprayed with vegetable spray) - just 3/4 full.

Let cool in racks for 5 minutes before turning out onto cooling racks.
