Melt the butter in a medium saute pan over medium heat. Add the shallots and cook until softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring often, 10 minutes.


Add the Cognac and cook until reduced to 2 to 3 tablespoons, about


Add the cream. Increase the heat and cook until the sauce thickens (the liquid should be reduced to one-half cup), about 2 minutes. Add the thyme and season with salt and pepper to taste. Keep the sauce warm while cooking the turkey.


Season the cutlets with salt and pepper on both sides. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in each of 2 large skillets over medium-high heat. Divide the sage between the pans and cook 1 minute, then push to sides of pans.


Lay cutlets in the pans and cook 2 minutes on a side, until just browned and cooked to taste. Drain the cutlets and sage on paper towels. Divide the cutlets among 4 plates, top each with a sage leaf and spoon the sauce over.
