If you run out of time to assemble the sandwiches, simply set out the spiral-cut ham along with the relish, mustard and rye bread, and let people assemble their own.

Directions

  1. Heat oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions; saute until well-browned, 10 to 12 minutes. Add rosemary and cloves; continue to saute until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes longer. Stir in cranberry sauce, and simmer until heated through. Remove from heat and set aside. (Cranberry-Onion Relish can be cooled, covered and refrigerated up to 2 weeks ahead.)
  2. To assemble: Working in batches, lay breads on a work surface and spread with about 1/4 tsp. mustard and 1 tsp. cranberry relish. Top half the breads with a portion of ham, cheese and arugula (optional), then the remaining bread slice. Halve each sandwich on the diagonal, sticking each half with a toothpick. (Sandwiches can be covered with a damp paper towel and plastic wrap and can remain at room temperature for 2 hours.)

Fantastic recipe!!!! I was searching for a great mini sandwich idea to make for my parents 50th anniversary party. I have to tell you, big big hit. The relish really makes this, I used about 4 Tablespoons of rosemary and red onion. Instead of using mini bread, I used whole loaf pumpernickel and cut them in 1/4. Every time I looked at my dad, he was eating another sandwich. I can't say enough about this recipe. Thank you so much!!!!!!! oh by the way, I wish I would of taken a picture so I could summit it.

I found this recipe because I was looking to replicate a cranberry onion jam I had in a restaurant. I don't eat ham but the relish was perfect for turkey sandwiches.
