Recipe by Manami
These are filled with sausage and Gruyere cheese and boy do they hit the spot! We added red pepper flakes and it made it even more delectable. We used turkey sausage but reduced-fat pork sausages were used in the original which I found in Cooking Light Magazine, October 2009 edition.

- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- 2 teaspoons fresh sage, chopped
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 pinch crushed red pepper flakes (or more)
- 8 ounces turkey sausage, cooked & crumbled
- 3⁄4 cup shredded gruyere cheese (3 oz)
